2nd Lockdown Announcement

05 November 2020

Dear Friends,

Well, here we go again! As we enter our second national lockdown, our team here at NTUK will continue to work as hard as we possibly can to help our NF community across the UK to weather the storms we may now face. While the pandemic and the lockdown affects all of us, it is extremely important to remember, and acknowledge, that we are not all in the same boat, and each member of our community may face their very own unique problems. The team is here to help you in any way we can, so please do not hesitate to contact us.

We can help in so many ways. First and foremost, our regional nurses are still here and carrying out their duties; there are sections on our website that cover medical issues, carers' information, issues around employment, school information, etc; and our national helpline will be operational as usual on Monday and Wednesday each week.

Please do continue to follow the government guidelines during this period. It is only if we all pull together, respect each other and behave as we should, that we will get the better of this dreadful virus. As we often say, we are stronger together!

With my warmest wishes,
