Advice from the Britsh Heart Foundation...
If you are living with a heart or circulatory condition, your risk of catching coronavirus is no higher than anyone else, however, the risks of developing complications from the virus, if infected, are greater. It is therefore particularly important that you reduce your chance of catching the virus by following the information provided by the UK government and NHS.
In light of this, our recommendation to you would be that, until further notice, you cancel all of your planned face to face HSG meetings.
