We know that people are feeling scared and anxious about Coronavirus. There is a lot of information and advice circulating but some of it can be confusing (and contradictory), so we have pulled together some useful links to helpful resources and information that we hope will allay some fears and stop some unnecessary worry.

Success Charity cannot offer individual advice on vulnerability, as this will differ widely from person to person, and is dependent on many different factors.  If you have complex medical problems, then we would advise contacting your specialist medical team(s) for advice that is individual to you.

We can recommend that you follow the advice of Public Health England (PHE) which is updated regularly, for advice on what to do to protect yourself and others here.

Hand washing, sneezing or coughing into your sleeve and self-isolating if symptomatic will help protect you and your family.

This link provides more detailed pictorial advice on what to do if you are unwell. If you need help explaining the virus to younger children, this link may help.

Additional Guidance

More information can be found from the following sources and we would recommend checking in with these organisations regularly to see if the advice has changed.

For those with pituitary deficiencies: The Pituitary Foundation have issued a coronavirus FAQ which explains sick days rules in this context. Advice is also available from the Society of Endocrinology

For those receiving Chemotherapy and/or Radiotherapy: The CCLG have issued guidance for those who are immunocompromised as a result of cancer treatment which has been endorsed by principal treatment centres.
