Dear friends
This is just a wee note to let you know we are thinking of you. We appreciate and understand your concerns during these unprecedented times. We know any change is hard
for you and worrying about your health can raise your anxiety.

We at the TSSS are doing our best to support you. So, do keep in touch via social media and check the website for updated information on a regular basis.

To reassure you, I have been in touch with our amazing TS specialist from throughout the UK who are working very hard for all their patients. Their message to you is “We do not believe that girls or women with TS are at increased of Covid 19 unless the following situations are applicable.” Please read the information below
for more details.

If you have Turner Syndrome and do contract or have had the Corona Virus/Covid 19 the TSSS would appreciate it if you could please take a few minutes to complete our survey. Dr Helen Turner from Oxford will review the responses and share any advice with the TSSS Community and her colleagues. Thank you so much

Do take some time to read the various information articles, posters, and useful website links we have put together, to keep you up to date and hopefully helped by some of the stress busting information too.

Take care and stay safe
Kind regards
Arlene
