Long COVID Clinics: Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales

Recommended Posts

Just over a week ago NHS England and NHS Improvement announced the launch of a network of 40 Long COVID clinics over the coming weeks. While there still needs to be more details providing, particularly a clear timeframe for the roll-out of these and information on their locations, I was wondering if anyone has heard about whether there are similar plans for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales? From a little online research at the moment I've only found the following:

Northern Ireland

  • No formal announcements from the Department of Health along these lines. The charity Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke have set up their own Covid Recovery Service.

Scotland

Wales

  • Quotes from a BBC News article from the Welsh Government that 'it expected health boards to develop and improve access to rehabilitation services'. This also mentions that the 'Cardiff and Vale Health Board is the first in Wales planning to open a multi-disciplinary rehabilitation service.'

Have you heard or seen anything to suggest plans are in place in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales to move forward with a similar plan to the NHS in England? Or perhaps an alternative approach?
