COVID-19 CLL and SLL survey
Survey v3
Please note - this survey is for UK residents only
Dear Supporter,

We need your help.

We are asking all UK CLL patients to complete this third version of the survey series please. The information you provide is vital to understand the impact that COVID-19 is having on our community

We are living in unprecedented times with the spread of COVID19. Our wonderful NHS, medical researchers and scientists are working flat out to cope with the impact and develop vaccines and treatments to defeat the new virus. We know some therapy studies have already started. As you will know, CLL patients are in the most vulnerable category and have to shield with the ensuing impact on family, friends and everyday life. Doctors have told us they would very much like to understand better how the virus is affecting our members.

How you can help

This is an initiative from the clinical community, and we have a unique opportunity to help medical professionals to understand the impact of the disease on CLL patients, their families and supporters and to provide invaluable research data with the intention of benefitting CLL patients.

What we would like you to do

We are inviting UK patients to complete this survey even if you filled one out before this new version of the survey will be left open for the foreseeable future. If you feel you have the virus we would particularly like your input, but the survey is open to all CLL and SLL patients.

Why is CLL Support and Leukaemia Care involved?

CLL Support and Leukaemia Care sit on the executive committee of the UK CLL Forum, the specialist umbrella organisation for CLL in the UK. Its aims are to bring together everyone with an interest in CLL and to bridge the gap between the clinical and scientific aspects of the disease. The Forum specialists are very keen for data on the impact of the virus on our community and have asked for our help. In conjunction with Leukaemia Care we have developed a survey to gather this data on their behalf.

How will this data be used?

This survey has been created by Leukaemia Care with CLL Support and the UK CLL Forum. Leukaemia Care is the data controller. Data collated from this survey will be shared with CLL Support and the UK CLL Forum but will not be used to send further marketing information to you. You will not be added to any databases of patients and if you wish to be placed on charity mailing lists, you will need to contact the charities involved directly.

In section 1, there is an option to submit your personal data. By submitting this data, you agree that you are happy to be further contacted about the contents of this survey ONLY. For more information about anything about this data collection, please email in the first instance.

We would be delighted if you feel able to help. Thank you.

Let’s fight this together.

Best wishes and stay safe
