New Fact Sheet added for Clozapine and Coronavirus

Posted on 25th March 2020 by Lisa Yates

Brand new fact sheets were added to the Choice and Medication downloadable leaflet suite on 23rd March 2020 for Clozapine and Coronavirus (COVID-19), which was recently authored by Professor Stephen Bazire.

Choice and Mediation have taken the lead and added both a UK and Australian fact sheet on the implications of COVID-19 for people taking clozapine with information and facts relating to various aspects e.g. supplies, blood tests, and precautions, etc. A New Zealand version can be added as soon as it is appropriate should the situation deteriorate.

The new leaflet is linked directly from the clozapine page on your subscribing trusts portal and a link can also be found on the handy fact sheets page. Should you require any further information or would like to subscribe to Choice and Medication for either personal use, a professional subscription or need an organisational license for your trust please contact the team via the link below:
