Blood test?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi all. I have had a kidney transplant 14 years ago in February. In July i have a blood test and hospital check up. The hospital check up is by phone as it been for last 4 times so that good i dont have to go into a hospital. If they are saying wear masks even to doctors i dont even want to step foot in them. What are chances if i ask one of them to come to my apartment instead. If they dont it look i want be having a blood test this time.

    were are you based? my gp did my daughters bloods & we rang to say we was outside & went through a door straight into the nurses room - the nurse was protected in masks so we were fine with that. my daughter has been in & out of hospital for the last 10 weeks & even admitted & i will say, at first i was panicking but they have different sections at the hospital to make sure their is no contact with staff & patients with or suspected corona & honestly , we felt safe . my 13 year old was put in her own room and a note outside door telling all staff to wear masks & gloves before entering, that was a precaution because my daughter had kidney problems meaning extremly high risk . their was hot wards & cold wards. cold wards for patients with no symptoms or no suspected corona -soon as you enter its washing & masking up . i was happy & felt safe & we go back every week for her bloods taking & again thry put us seperate because she is clinically extremly vulnerable & taking immunosuppressants
