COVID Recovery Resources

There is a new national resource available to support patients recovering from COVID-19 who are continuing to experience an impact on their physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing - now known as 'Long Covid'.    

Your COVID Recovery is an online platform with two key components:   

  •  An open publicly available site containing general information on all aspects of recovering from COVID-19 including physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing. The site offers general advice on recovery, returning to work and information for families and carers of patients with post-COVID syndrome (also known as Long COVID). It also signposts to other agencies such as the British Lung Foundation and the Samaritans. The information on this site will be reviewed as the evidence and national guidance for management of the conditions develops.   CLICK HERE to access more information on COVID recovery


  • An online, interactive rehabilitation platform specifically for patients with post-COVID syndrome, that is tailored for individuals and requires referral and face to face assessment from a healthcare professional. This will be live from 31 October 2020, to be rolled out using a phased approach, and is to be offered as an adjunct rather than a replacement for usual primary care support and rehabilitation services that are available

'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'
