For people left with breathing difficulties after COVID-19, their family members, carers, healthcare professionals, policy-makers and researchers. Stay up to date through our dedicated Post-COVID HUB.
We are still learning about the effects of COVID-19 on people’s long-term health. However early studies show that some people recovering from a severe case of the coronavirus can have ongoing breathing difficulties.
We have created the Post-COVID HUB for:
People with post-COVID breathing difficulties and their family members and carers to get reliable information and dedicated support for physical and mental health.
Researchers to get information on emerging evidence, research efforts and funding opportunities related to post-COVID respiratory complications.
Healthcare professionals to get the latest guidelines on supporting people with post-COVID breathlessness.
Policy-makers and commissioners to get the latest information about the long-term respiratory impacts of COVID-19, to inform meaningful policy and service change.
Our understanding is improving every day. We will work hard to continuously update the Post-COVID HUB, so you know that the information you find here covers the latest developments.
Our Helpline and WhatsApp service will be closed from 2pm Thursday 24 December until 9am Monday 4 January. If you need support during this time, please check to see if we’ve answered your question here.
If you are experiencing new symptoms, or a change to your symptoms, please contact NHS 111. If it’s a medical emergency, you need to call 999.
Together, we can ensure that everyone enjoys the best possible health and quality of life post-COVID.
