Homerton have provided an update regarding immunosuppression:
- They are not stopping immunosuppression at present, but if the patient develops new symptoms (i.e. a cough or fever), then they will stop mtx and leflunomide. Sulfasalazine and hydroxychloroquine are safe to remain on.
- They are stopping all IV biologic infusions and IV/SC osteoporosis therapies.
- They are pausing all new starters to biologics.
- They are operating telephone clinics from now on, and will be making a clinical decision as to whether a patient does require a face-to-face consultation.
