The Leeds Long Covid Community Rehabilitation Service is a partnership between Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust and The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
The service has been developed to help people in Leeds who are experiencing new, long lasting problems 12 weeks or more after a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infection which are significantly impacting how they are able to function in day-to-day life.
The initial infection with COVID-19 can present with a wide range of different symptoms and severities and not everyone required hospital care or got a test.
The nature of long-lasting problems may be very wide ranging, and could include: fatigue, limited exercise tolerance, breathlessness, pains, anxiety, depression, brain fog/thinking problems, loss of appetite or weight, as well as other problems.
Our Multi-Disciplinary team consists of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Dietitians and Rehabilitation Assistants, to provide rehabilitation for people in a clinic or home setting, using face to face and virtual consultations. The team are supported by consultants from The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust with specialities in rehabilitation medicine, cardiology, and respiratory medicine.
Referrals into this service are via GP, Neighbourhood Team or Community Respiratory Team.
