Ask your MP to Save Our Shielders
Over the last few months the shielding service has given support to tens of thousands of people with blood cancer who can’t work from home.
But they are now being told this support is stopping, despite it now being clear that blood cancer increases the risk from coronavirus by more than almost any other condition.
We estimate that around 9,000 people who can’t work from home will soon face the impossible choice between protecting their health and keeping their jobs.
This can’t be allowed to happen.
We want the Chancellor to give people with blood cancer whose doctor has said they should continue shielding or whose workplace cannot be made COVID-safe, 80% of their salary. This will mean they can protect themselves until the risk from the virus has passed.
