    beau, personal care so doubt it

    I've just had a letter from Matt Hancock about going into level 4 restrictions. Unfortunately that's now out of date as of last night we went into lock down. So still expecting that letter. Comes to something when the gov can't keep up sending letters to the extremely clinically vulnerable!

    I'm sure I could now cover a wall in my bathroom with the gov's letters I've had

    Been and back and they were open.
    Apparently it was their governing body that said they had to shut last time so insurance wouldn't cover them so we didn't have any appointments during the 1st lockdown. Now officially classed as medical so they can practice. Only one at a time are in the whole place unless you are a couple.

    Still waiting for the letters here.
    Hubby has urgent biopsy tomorrow and his covid test results aren't back yet. They can hardly refuse to do it as his lymph nodes that can be felt are the size of lemons according to the consultant and it is urgent. He was told he is at very high risk of DVT's because of them in spite of the blood thinners.

    StarBright, thank you. Finally got his Covid test results at 6am this morning, negative as expected because if he had it he would be really ill.
    Chiropody now classed as medical hence the reason appointments can go ahead. Diabetics need their feet checking regularly possibly that is why now medical.

    Arh yes hadn't thought of diabetics but even so they are some of the ones we need to shield the most. Who knows!

    That's given me a new term - A 'Foot-to-Face Assessment'.

    I'm sure we've all known at least one assessor who deserved a foot to the face.

    Beau, hope all goes well for your Hubby's biopsy tomorrow.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Thank you Nukecad, results not for 2 weeks or more as the samples are sent to Western Park hospital for analysis.
