Recognising the work of our Long-Covid clinic team

The long-COVID clinic team, based at King George Hospital, have been recognised by international news agency, Associated Press, for their work to support patients with on-going COVID-related difficulties.

The agency visited the clinic last week to meet patients including Rohit Patel, who spent three months at King George Hospital, including six weeks in an induced coma. With the support of this clinic, he is hoping to return to his much-loved job next month.

They were also able to meet several professionals, from both our organisation and BHRUT, who we work in partnership with to run the clinic. These included respiratory consultant Adam Ainley, physiotherapist Jane Clark and psychologist Marc Kingsley.

You can read the story on the AP website, and also watch their video. So far, the story has already been picked up by the Independent, and around the world including Orlando, and the San Francisco Chronicle.
