2nd November 2020
The UK Government has announced a new lockdown with national restrictions effective from midnight on 4 November.
Please note that there are different rules for each of the devolved nations, details of which can be found below.
This is a summary of the restrictions. More details can be found below:
Please bear in mind that these are rules for the general population. CLL patients and their families will need to assess their own level of risk according to their own vulnerability.
We strongly suggest that patients contact their medical support team to try to determine their own level of risk, which will vary from patient to patient.
All CLL patients are now advised to shield. You can find the UK Government advice for England here.
The following is a summary of some of the key points that may affect CLL patients. For more detailed information, please refer to the government website.

You may attend medical appointments, although individual trusts may make separate decisions according to the level of virus in the area and their ability to create a safe environment. Please check with your health care team.
