Long COVID Service

About the service

'Long COVID'  is a term used to describe symptoms that continue or develop after your initial infection of COVID19. The Long COVID service aims to help people who are still experiencing these affects months after they have fallen ill.

 The symptoms of long COVID are wide-ranging and fluctuating and can includepain, breathlessness, chronic fatigue, brain fog, anxiety and stress. However, many patients recover with support, rest, symptomatic treatment, and with a gradual increase in physical activity.

What we do

Patients referred into the Long COVID service will be asked to fill out a questionnaire and will then undergo a number of physical, cognitive and psychological assessments. Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) will then work alongside other health teams to develop a support plan that will help improve their health outcomes and quality of life. Patients will also be signposted to existing Long COVID support services and will have access to the ‘Living with COVID’ App, offering patients education, support and encouragement.

Accessing the service

The service is available by GP referral only and is available to anyone who is still experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 for more than 12 weeks. Appointments will be available virtually and face to face (when safe to do so).

There are six Long COVID clinics are now open across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Anyone experiencing the symptoms of Long COVID are advised to visit https://www.yourcovidrecovery.nhs.uk/  for more information and if symptoms persist, to contact their GP or health care professional.
