About our Long Covid Clinic

The Long Covid Clinic at Cromwell Hospital is a comprehensive, consultant-led clinic designed to treat the varied symptoms of Long Covid, enabling you to get back to your normal physical and emotional health.

The clinic is led by a team of consultants who have extensive clinical expertise and are world-leaders in treating respiratory conditions. After an initial consultation, a personalised set of tests will be devised and from this a tailored treatment plan will be created. If required, it will incorporate onward referrals to other key specialists, including cardiologists, neurologists, specialist respiratory physiotherapists, as well as sleep experts and psychiatrists.

We understand the impact Long Covid is having on your lifestyle and well-being and consequently the huge emotional strain you may be feeling. Many people are suffering from anxiety or similar conditions and treating this is as important as any physical symptoms you may be experiencing. At the hospital we have a compassionate clinical team who will support you at every stage of your treatment and help put your mind at ease.
