Taunton 2020 APRIL & MAY MEETINGS CANCELLED

Taunton Support Group dates:


Due to the ongoing issues with Coronavirus,
the Taunton Group meetings have been postponed until further notice.  We hope to resume future meetings, but this will depend on the Coronavirus guidance at the time.

 

The charity states that people taking immunosuppressive drugs, including prednisolone and other cortico-steroids and methotrexate are NOT at increased risk of catching the Coronavirus (Covid-19) virus.  It does seem that the infection may have a greater risk of complications in people taking these drugs but the very strong advice is that nobody should change their treatment regime except under medical instructions.

Keep washing your hands, and NHS 111 should be your first port of call.
