Coronavirus: NHS England launches tool to aid long-term recovery

NHS England is launching a new service for people with ongoing health problems after having coronavirus.

The government says "tens of thousands" of people have long-term symptoms after catching COVID-19.

"Your Covid Recovery" will be an online portal for people in England to access tutorials, contact healthcare workers and track their progress.

The project will be rolled out in two phases, with the web portal launching later this month.

It will only be accessible via a personal log-in and will be available to virus patients who had to be treated in hospital, as well as to those who managed their illness at home.

Later in the summer, tailored rehabilitation will also be offered to those who qualify, following an assessment.

Each programme will last a maximum of 12 weeks, the Department of Health and Social Care said.
