Long COVID is an emerging condition that is not yet well understood but can be severely disabling, impacting people regardless of hospitalisation or severity of acute COVID-19.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimates that over a million people in the UK were reporting symptoms associated with long COVID at the beginning of March 2021. Approximately 1 in 5 study participants (21.0%) who tested positive for COVID-19 from a swab sample continued to report a symptom at least 5 weeks after the assumed time of infection.

How to effectively support people living with Long Covid symptoms is still the matter of some debate, but the picture is evolving all the time and some key lessons have been learned.  This webinar aims to provide an update on the latest expert opinion and evidence base. The panel will set out the key challenges and priorities for providing the personalised care and pathways required.
