COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information for Healthcare Professionals

The coronavirus outbreak is a rapidly developing situation. Please visit the NHS website for the most up-to-date information for people in the UK.

There is very rapidly evolving data concerning Covid-19 and we will try and keep our members appraised of the lasted evidence based, specialist society supported, information. One of the most useful things that we can do is to ensure that patients are very well educated as to “sick day rules”, and which medications to “pause” at times of inter-current illness (which is covered in out SGLT2 document).
