Living With Covid Recovery
The tool targets patients who are no longer infected but are continuing to recover and rehabilitate at home. By delivering aspects of rehabilitation remotely, the programme helps NHS staff support more patients than would normally be possible in a timely and cost-effective way. As of September 2021, Living With Covid Recovery is helping over 1,500 patients with their recovery across 23 clinics in 16 NHS trusts. There are plans to roll out to more hospitals soon to meet the growing need for this support.
The rehabilitation tool targets primary symptoms that ‘long-haulers’ report experiencing for many weeks and even months after the peak of their infection – such as fatigue, anxiety and breathing problems. It combines evidence-based methods from physiotherapists, psychologists, dieticians and respiratory physicians to create bespoke treatment plans for each patient.
