- As you find yourself recovering from COVID-19 you may still be coming to terms with the impact the virus has had on both your body and mind. These changes should get better over time, some may take longer than others, but there are things you can do to help.
- Your COVID Recovery helps you to understand what has happened and what you might expect as part of your recovery.
- This post-covid19 patient information pack contains some useful information and support for managing these symptoms.
