National guidance on Long COVID

Last month NHS England and NHS Improvement launched its five-point plan to support people with Long COVID. NICE, SIGN and RCGP have now published the scope for the forthcoming guideline on the long-term effects of COVID-19.

Guidance to assist local healthcare systems to establish post-COVID assessment clinics has been published on our website. The clinics will be available to patients diagnosed with long COVID, whether they were hospitalised or not, enabling physical, cognitive and psychological assessments of those experiencing enduring symptoms. In addition, guidance is available for the Your COVID Recovery platform, a digital, interactive and tailored recovery programme which has been developed by experts to provide rehabilitation support for patients to manage their recovery at home.
