New film shows how specialist NHS Long Covid services are supporting patients
This new film follows patients at the NHS specialist Post-Covid clinic at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary, one of 90 such services that are now established across England, as part of a £224m NHS investment to support people experiencing the long term effects of Covid.
Featured in the film is John, who explains how the ongoing effects of Covid have impacted on his overall health and day-to-day life. As part of his assessment, John gets a psychological and physical check-up from a multidisciplinary team of NHS professionals to help him manage his symptoms and support his recovery.
