Organised by: Long Covid Support in partnership with North Thames NIHR Clinical Research Network and Long Covid Scotland

The long term consequences of Covid infection currently affect over 2 million people in the UK. Thousands of people have been ill for over 3 years and, every day, more people acquire Long Covid. By now there are thousands of research papers on Long Covid. More needs to be discovered but we already understand a great deal about its features. We have plausible theories as to the disease mechanisms and an understanding of how to treat the associated disorders such as POTS, MCAS and breathing pattern disorder. Despite this, many people struggle to obtain effective treatment from either primary or secondary care, and many clinicians are unclear as to how to manage Long Covid.

In the UK, dedicated research funding was committed by the NIHR in 2020 and 2021, but no further dedicated funding has been allocated. Clinics were initiated by NHS England but the clinical need was underestimated and responsibility for clinics is now being passed to regional ICS’s. No dedicated clinics were ever established in the other countries of the UK.

This meeting will discuss where we are in terms of research and clinical care for Long Covid in the UK, where we need to get to, and how we will get there.
