After 12 weeks
If the effects continue to affect you after 12 weeks and are not helped by the resources on the Your COVID Recovery website, you should discuss options with your GP.
Post-COVID Syndrome assessment clinic
Post Covid Syndrome Assessment clinics have been launched across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire to help patients who are experiencing multiple new and ongoing symptoms at 12 weeks or more after a COVID infection.
You should speak to your GP who will refer you to the clinic if it is suitable for your needs. The clinic will fully assess your physical, mental and cognitive needs, usually by telephone, and will hold a discussion with a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians to plan your care. The plan may include referrals to community and mental health services to help treat your symptoms.
Speak to your GP to see if this is suitable for you.
