The NHS is taking practical action to help patients suffering ongoing health issues as a result of COVID, bringing together experts and setting up specialist clinics covering the whole country, as well as collecting and publishing data on the demographics of patients referred with Long COVID to develop a greater understanding of the condition.

There is a Long COVID Assessment and Rehabilitation Service at West Herts Hospital which is designed to provide physical and psychological support for patients who are experiencing ongoing symptoms and complications after having the virus. At present, they offer virtual sessions only, you can be referred to this clinic by your GP.
