Your Covid Recovery is a new NHS website designed to help people recover from the long-term effects of coronavirus, otherwise known as Covid-19.
If you have had Covid-19, you may still have some physical symptoms, such as breathlessness, a cough, and a lack of energy. You may also have psychological symptoms, such as feeling scared or anxious, depressed, having trouble sleeping, and struggling to remember or concentrate.
These symptoms, both physical and psychological, are common. Your Covid Recovery includes information from experts about how to manage them and look after your health and wellbeing. It also includes information on returning to work, and a helpful section for family, friends, and carers of people who are recovering.
If you have mild symptoms and are staying at home the following leaflet may be helpful...

As we receive further government direction on the use of face coverings, you may be wondering if you or someone you care for is exempt. If you need information on whether you are exempt and to download an exemption card please click here. Face coverings and masks do not inhibit or worsen lung function and we would encourage everyone who can, to wear one, particularly to enter any Healthcare facilities and Pharmacies. It may feel awkward at first, but it does get easier!
If you don't have a face mask, you can make one easily without sewing from a sock from the instructional video at this link
