Coronavirus: NHS England launches tool to aid long-term recovery

NHS England is launching a new service for people with ongoing health problems after having coronavirus. "Your Covid Recovery" will be an online portal for people in England to access tutorials, contact healthcare workers and track their progress. The service, which was developed and piloted in Leicester, will include access to mental health services, community support groups and exercise tutorials, either online or over the phone. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the portal would "Give people who have survived the virus on-demand access to online clinical support" for problems with breathing, mental health or other complications. Sir Simon Stevens, chief executive of NHS England, said: "Rolling out Your Covid Recovery, alongside expanding and strengthening community health and care services, is another example of how the NHS must bring the old and the new together to create better and more convenient services for patients."
