Long-term effects of coronavirus (long COVID)

We are currently reviewing patients with long COVID symptoms. Patient's struggling with ongoing symptoms of COVID for more than 12 weeks should contact the surgery to book for a routine review with a GP.

What is long COVID?

How long it takes to recover from coronavirus is different for everybody. Many people feel better in a few days or weeks and most will make a full recovery within 12 weeks. But for some people, symptoms can last longer. The chances of having long-term symptoms does not seem to be linked to how ill you are when you first get coronavirus. People who had mild symptoms at first can still have long-term problems.
