Supporting your recovery after COVID-19

Your Covid Recovery is a new NHS website designed to help people recover from the long-term effects of coronavirus, otherwise known as Covid-19.

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. Your Covid Recovery includes information from experts about how to manage any symptoms, both physical and psychological that you may still have, and tips to look after your health and wellbeing. It also includes information on returning to work, and a helpful section for family, friends and carers of people who are recovering.
