Long COVID support

Helping you through your recovery

Coronavirus is here to stay, and our understanding of how it affects sufferers once they recover from the initial infection is continually changing. We ensure that we’re up to date with all the latest medical data, so that we can best provide support for all our patients as they recover from infection.

While the vast majority of those who contract COVID-19 make a full and relatively quick recovery, there is a small, yet significant, number who continue to experience symptoms for many months afterwards.

During your check-up, we’ll measure your blood cell levels, as well as giving you an ongoing assessment of any associated symptoms such as the function of your lungs, heart and kidneys.

We’ll also provide continuing support for slow-to-resolve viral symptoms, as well as early referrals for cardiac symptoms, lung issues or neurological concerns.

We’re also able to provide pre-vaccination against pneumonia, in order to reduce the risk of significant future harm from COVID, which can prove essential for some at-risk patients. If you’d like to find out more or book yourself in, get in contact – we’re here to help.

Frequently asked questions

How does long COVID affect the body?

Coronavirus can have a devastating effect on the body, causing an inflammatory reaction that affects all areas of the body. While this is most noticeable in the lungs, it can also include the heart and circulatory system, gastrointestinal system, skin, brain, nerves and kidneys.

What tests do you offer as part of long COVID support?

We offer you a wide range of checks and tests, either carried out during your consultation in the clinic, or afterwards at one of the state-of-the-art facilities in our extended network. These include:

  • Blood tests (for inflammatory markers, clotting problems, Covid-antibodies, Vitamin D and B12/folate)
  • Chest X-ray
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Lung spirometry test

 

What ongoing care do you provide post COVID

A healthy lifestyle plays a vital role in supporting a well-functioning, effective immune system, which is why proactive health management is an essential part of our long COVID support.
