NHS England are set to launch a new service for children suffering from long COVID.
Although data has suggested that children are less likely to suffer from severe disease, there have been an increasing number of reports of continued symptoms.
The new service will consist of 15 new paediatric hubs with experts to treat young people and advise their families and carers or refer them to specialist services.
The NHS has invested £100m in specialist services to help meet the needs of the possible hundreds of thousands who are expected to experience long COVID with symptoms ranging from breathing difficulties to fatigue.
