There has been considerable confusion and anxiety among many of our patients about their level of risk from Covid19 and what precautions they should take. We know that both patient support groups and clinical geneticists across the country have been fielding calls from concerned patients and carers.
In response to this, the British Society for Genetic Medicine and the Clinical Genetics Society have been collaborating with clinical geneticists at GOSH to develop a new Covid-19 risk assessment tool (see link to Tool news page). The risk grid which underpins that tool is available here The grid is an amalgamation of covid19 risk advice from relevant specialties as well as BSGM covid-19 statement.
