Blood Cancer UK (hooray, I used the new title for the first time!), have posted that they have written to the Government and supermarkets on the need to prioritise blood cancer patients for deliveries . See article This is excellent, well done to Gemma and her team for taking this initiative as clearly a lot of people were struggling,
However, it seems the situation is already improving. I am pleased to inform you that Asda have now opened a prirority scheme. I received an email on Saturday inviting me to join the scheme. It allows prirotiy delivery for anyone who is listed as ‘vulnerable’. It offers a free pass enabling:
• Priority on new home delivery slots as they become available
• The chance to book a recurring weekly slot for peace of mind
• Free deliveries.
It seems Sainsbury was quick off the mark to offer priority delivery but this is a sign that the others are now catching up. So if you normally shop with one of the other main supermarkets you may find they are offering a similar scheme.
Note, it is really important that you register with the Government Page if you have not done so already.
I have not yet received the letter or text, so I am fairly sure that I only received this due to registering there.
Stay safe everyone!
