How can I access the post covid syndrome service?

  • If you are experiencing any of the symptoms as listed on the NHS guidance pages, and have had symptoms of COVID-19 for 4 weeks or more, you should contact your GP.
  • Your doctor will ask about your symptoms and the impact they’re having on your life and give advice on how to manage and monitor your symptoms at home. They may suggest some tests to find out more about your symptoms and rule out other things that could be causing them.
  • These might include:
    • blood tests
    • checking your blood pressure and heart rate
    • a chest X-ray.
  • If appropriate, you may then be referred to our specialist rehabilitation service.
