Scots suffering Long Covid fear a postcode lottery means effective diagnosis and treatment depends on where you live and on which side of the border.
Ewan Dale, from the MEA said:
“People with Long Covid are approaching us but there is no place to send them.
“Some are being advised by GPs to exercise when evidence shows that post-viral fatigue needs rest, not exertion, to recover.
“There seems to be little guidance on how to treat patients. Many were not desperately ill with Covid but now have chronic symptoms worse than the virus.
“Some have long-term organ damage and need ongoing medical care, not an eventual referral to an occupational therapist.”
