Post-Covid Assessment

What is Post-Covid Assessment?

Covid affects people differently and symptoms could differ from person to person. Additionally, the recovery length is different for everyone as the virus affects an individual’s body in many ways.

Most people who test positive for Covid-19 make a full recovery in under twelve weeks although some show symptoms for much longer. These long-term symptoms of Covid are sometimes referred to as “long Covid”.

Common long Covid symptoms include:

  •    Extreme tiredness or fatigue
  •    Shortness of breath
  •    Chest pain or tightness
  •    Issues with memory and concentration
  •    Problem sleeping
  •    Heart palpitations
  •    Dizziness
  •    Pins and needles
  •    Joint pain
  •    Tinnitus or earaches
  •    Feeling ill, diarrhea, stomach aches, loss of appetite
  •    Elevated temperature, cough, headaches, sore throat, changes to sense of smell or taste
  •    Rashes

Post-Covid Assessment

At Specialty Care Clinics, we provide a comprehensive post covid assessment that gives you the opportunity to explore the impact of covid on your current physical and mental health with one of our expert general practitioners (GPs). The assessment looks to provide a holistic assessment and contains a range of exams and tests to help you return to full health and better understand the long-term impact covid has on your body and mind.

Our team of general practitioners (GPs) has access to a full multidisciplinary team including physiotherapists, dieticians, and a network of in-house consultants who could support any additional care, follow up or tests you might need.

The mental health impacts of covid could have one of the biggest long-term effects. Our integrated mental health pathway means we could access a national network of psychologists, counselors, therapists, and psychiatrists if required.
