    A new survey of half a million adults in the UK has revealed more than 2 million may have suffered from long Covid. Currently, long Covid is not fully understood and its definition has not yet been agreed upon. The self-reported survey showed 37% of respondents experienced at least one symptom lasting 12 weeks or more with higher weight, smoking, lower incomes and having a chronic illness being associated with a higher chance of experiencing symptoms of long Covid. The government has issued £50m in funding for research on long Covid. Read full story. Source: BBC News, 24

    At the NHS Confederation Conference on the 15 June 2021 Sir Simon Stevens, Chief Executive of the NHS, announced a further package of support for Long Covid for 2021/22. This includes a £100 million investment, £30 million of which will go towards an enhanced service for general practice to support Long Covid care. The remaining £70 million will be used to expand other NHS Long Covid services and establish 15 ‘paediatric hubs’ to coordinate care for children and young people. This investment underpins The Long Covid Plan 21/22. This aims to build on the previous five-point plan announced

    “Access to health information to help people make informed choices about their health and wellbeing is vital. More so when an illness becomes long term and stops people living their normal life. When trusted information is missing, misinformation and disinformation can fill the gap and cause real harm. People with long Covid should not be left to Dr Google, particularly when we know Covid has hit disadvantaged communities hardest.…” Sophie Randall, Director at Patient Information Forum Symptoms of Long Covid Patients with Long Covid report wide-ranging symptoms affecting all body

    People who remain chronically ill after Covid infections in England have had to wait months for appointments and treatment at specialist clinics set up to handle the surge in patients with long Covid. MPs called on Matt Hancock, the health secretary, to explain the lengthy waiting times and what they described as a “shameful postcode lottery” which left some patients facing delays of more than four months before being assessed at a specialist centre while others were seen within days. NHS England announced in December that people with long Covid, or post-Covid syndrome, could seek he

    On Christmas Day, Gail Jackson’s 16-year-old daughter said she was in so much pain she thought she would die. Liliana had been briefly admitted to hospital with Covid in September. Her symptoms never went away and, as time went on, new ones had emerged. “For months she had a relentless, agonising headache, nausea, tinnitus, fatigue and insomnia, but the worst thing was the agonising nerve pain,” said Jackson. “I couldn’t even touch her without her screaming in pain.” On Christmas morning, Jackson drove to hospital with her daughter vomiting from pain in the passenger seat. When they

    Unable to access hospital care and tests Between March and September 2020, there was blanket NHS order to hospitals, ambulances, GPs, 111 not to admit anyone to hospital unless they were ‘blue around the lips’ or unconscious. If you talk to people with Long Covid, you will find many were very ill during this time but turned away by all health services. This led to many being inaccurately labelled ‘mild' because not admitted. At the start of the pandemic, testing was not widely available and evidence showed a high false negative rate. Despite this awareness, many people suffering long

    More than 80 new clinics to assess patients suffering with symptoms of Long Covid are to be opened by the NHS by the end of this month with an extra investment of £24m. NHS England chief executive Sir Simon Stevens said the health service must “continue to expand its offer for Long Covid” adding there will be even more funding earmarked for the problem in the future. Speaking at the Health Service Journal’s leadership congress on Wednesday, Sir Simon said: “We have 69 clinics identified last year and we will have 83 long Covid clinics in place by the end of this month, so a significa

    Lyth Hishmeh kept feeling ill months after contracting coronavirus a year ago in March. He had chest pain and couldn't concentrate. At 26 years old, the former regular runner was fatigued and breathless, struggling to function properly. Yet medical professionals kept telling him he simply could not still be ill. "They were telling me it's all in my head," he said. For Hishmeh who lives in London and many sufferers of long Covid, proving they are sick has become a big part of trying to get better. Another Londoner, Monique Jackson, has lost count of the number of times her pain was de

    Health coach Jasmine Hayer had to give up her life in London and move back in with her parents after catching Covid. Now she is focused on a twin goal - battling back to health while helping others get the right treatment for Long Covid. Dr William Man, the head of the Royal Brompton Hospital's chest clinic, started treating her in December, as part of a clinic seeing 100 severe long Covid cases in the UK. Jasmine describes it as a "complete game changer". However, she worries that other so-called "long haulers" are not getting the help they need because they face "such a battle

    Long Covid patients have voiced growing frustration at a “postcode lottery” in clinical support for debilitating symptoms, with some areas of the UK offering no specialist clinics more than a year after coronavirus took hold. Other sufferers said they were disappointed by long Covid clinics investigating certain symptoms only, with no comprehensive treatment plan. Official figures suggest there are almost 700,000 Britons with Covid symptoms lasting over three months. In October, NHS England announced more than £10m for a network of clinics bringing together doctors, nurses, therapist

    Key findings: An estimated 90%+ of Long Covid patients were not hospitalised. 7 months post infection, c.70% reported being too unwell to work at all or to their previous capacity. 82% of respondents to the survey have struggled to secure referrals since publication of the NICE/SIGN/RCGP guideline and list of clinics. There is an urgent need for information and clarity of referral pathways to remove barriers to access as well as inefficiencies. There is an urgent need for information and communications to reach GPs and other health professionals to help patients access i

    Lasting effects of infection from coronavirus are more common in women and children than expected, with at least 10% of people infected suffering persistent symptoms for months, a new review has found. Experts at the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) examined more than 300 separate scientific studies for the analysis. It found many patients reported struggling to access testing and help from the NHS to treat their symptoms, which varied between patients, suggesting long Covid is a group of four possible syndromes affecting patients differently. The report said: “Long Covi

    The report makes the following recommendations for the future research agenda: More research is needed on the incidence of Long Covid and its causes. This will help to predict and prevent Long Covid in the longer term. There is an urgent need to research treatments and management for people with Long Covid. The emergent nature of the understanding of Long Covid emphasises the need to continue to explore a range of hypotheses in any research that is undertaken. A precursor to research in all areas is a better understanding of the disease syndromes and symptom clusters that cur

    Joanna Herman, a consultant in infectious diseases, had high hopes when Boris Johnson announced £10m for long Covid clinics. Five months on, she is yet to be referred to one. "Despite the government recently giving £18.5m research funding for the disease, it feels as though all focus is now on the vaccine and the lifting of lockdown, while those living with long Covid have been largely forgotten," says Joanna. Her initial illness was, by definition, a mild case of Covid: no hospital admission and no risk factors for severe disease. Months later she found herself experiencing crashing

    Sufferers say they have had little specialist help despite NHS England setting up dedicated clinics. “It’s not that I feel I have been abandoned, I think that is perfectly obvious,” says Rachel Pope. “If you speak to any long Covid patient, they have been abandoned.” Until exactly a year ago – 5 March 2020 – Pope was “an incredibly fit woman”. A senior lecturer in European prehistory at the University of Liverpool, her work and lifestyle were very active. But after falling ill to Covid, she spent four months unable to walk, then three more when she could manage little more than “a so
