CLL Support on the BBC!

The easing of lockdown has caused concern and anxiety for many of our members, including, of course, CLL Support trustees, all of whom have CLL or have family members who are affected by CLL.

One of our trustees, Norah Grant was interviewed on the Radio 4 ‘Today’ programme on Saturday 1 August about the pausing of shielding which came into effect on that day.

Norah, who has CLL and leads our support group for people under 60 with the condition, says the decision to end shielding was “very odd just considering everything that is happening in Manchester and all around”.”I don’t think I will be changing my habits,” she told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, adding that she will be able to work from home in one of her two jobs. “A lot of people in our [support] group are very nervous about going back to work,” she said.
