Most people with COVID-19 feel better within a few days or weeks of their first symptoms and make a full recovery within 12 weeks. For some people, symptoms can last longer.
The long term effects of COVID-19, now known as long COVID or post COVID-19 syndrome, are making it incredibly difficult for many people to get back to normal life. Almost 2 million people in the UK are estimated to be living with long COVID, which can have immeasurable effects on their physical, mental and emotional health.
We as a surgery are committed to offering help and support to our patients suffering with the damaging effects of long COVID-19.
Below we have a link to a poster that outline some of the symptoms of long COVID-19, so you can check if you may have been affected.
