PHOSP-COVID focuses on patients who were hospitalised for COVID19 because of the funding structure for research and not because we believe that non-hospitalised patients have had milder disease, or fewer long-term problems. There are other research studies being conducted that are applicable to non-hospitalised COVID19 survivors.
There is a separate programme called ‘Your COVID Recovery’, led by Prof Sally Singh and other UK experts. They have a new information website about health following COVID19, accessible to all: https://www.yourcovidrecovery.nhs.uk/ which has research built into it.
‘Your COVID Recovery’ will also offer personalised rehab programmes for patients who have had COVID19. Access to the service will be via referral by a healthcare professional, please speak to your GP about this.
