Coronavirus and Sickle Cell Live Q&A
Friday 5th November 2021
Over a year on from the previous Q&A, the fourth Sickle Cell Society’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Sickle Cell Live Q&A took place on Friday 5th November 2021.
The session started with a presentation from Dr Mark Layton (Consultant haematologist and SCS Medical Adviser) who took us through the most up-to-date data on COVID-19 within the sickle cell population.
The floor was then opened up for questions from members of the sickle cell community from across the country.
The Q&A panel consisted of:
- Professor Adam Finn (Professor of Paediatrics and Member of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation)
- Professor David Rees (Consultant Paediatric Haematologist and SCS Medical Adviser)
- Dr Mark Layton (Consultant haematologist and SCS Medical Adviser)
- John James OBE (Chief Executive of the Sickle Cell Society)
