National xeroderma pigmentosum advice during coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
People with xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) are no more at risk or vulnerable than the general public, so please follow government guidelines.
XP patients with significant neurological disease will still have robust immune systems but may find it harder to cope with the symptoms of coronavirus so should be considered as a higher risk category. Any patients that we consider vulnerable have been contacted directly.
We encourage you to carry your XP card with you, if you have one.
Please keep up to date with the latest government guidance on the gov.uk website and follow all government advice on social distancing, frequent hand washing, travel and self-isolation. You can also find out more by visiting the coronavirus page on the NHS website.
