Coronavirus (COVID-19): Scotland's Long Covid service

This paper sets out the key elements that underpin our approach to care and support for people with long Covid.

What people with long COVID can expect from NHS Scotland

Long COVID can affect each person in different ways and at different times. As such, people might require different levels of support and resources in order to achieve their personal outcomes.

There are a range of sources of help and support in place across our health and social care services and the third sector to make sure that people get a person-centred response targeted to their needs.
