I know that these are worrying times, so I wanted to send a message of support to those of you who may be concerned about Coronavirus, to reassure you about GenderGP’s services and importantly, your medication supply.

The remote nature of GenderGP is such that it is well placed to deal with a crisis such as this. GenderGP’s suppliers have measures in place and they are confident that services are able to continue, to support our community and anyone who needs us, throughout the coming months.

Of course, the situation is evolving on a daily basis, so we will keep listening and adapting as necessary, to ensure all patients, and their close support networks, get the care they need.

Over the coming weeks GenderGP will be working on bringing in some new ideas to help ease the loneliness of social isolation, so please keep an eye on social media and the blog, for updates.

We will also post any Service Announcements here so that you have easy access to the latest service-related news.

Community news and stories will continue to be published on our blog and of course our podcast will continue to go out, as we know that many of you find great comfort in this (we recorded a wonderful episode with Mia Violet @ohmiagod on Friday which we know you will love).

We also want to hear what you are doing to ease the burden – if you have any ideas, stories, pictures and videos you want to share, please contact us.

We all know what an incredible community we are part of, let’s come together and support each other until normality resumes – which it will, in time.

Don’t forget, if you are feeling unwell, the current recommendation is to use the NHS 111 online checker for advice on what to do next 111.nhs.uk/covid-19, or call NHS 111 if you think you have symptoms or you might have been exposed to the virus.
