Introducing AXA Health long COVID care

20 April 2021

It's common for people that had COVID-19 to report symptoms that are ongoing weeks after catching the virus, these effects are now being recognised as long COVID. It's now becoming the next key consideration to come from the pandemic. It's become a hot topic, and that's why we've worked to provide a long COVID care service for our members.

With one in five people who test positive for COVID-19 having symptoms for five weeks or longer1, the potential impacts of this on employees' short and longer-term health and wellbeing needs and, consequently, productivity cannot be underestimated.

We’ve worked quickly with leading long COVID experts to develop a long COVID care service and we’re pleased to showcase this for you.

View our webinar and Q&A as we introduce AXA Health long COVID care. Soraya Chamberlain, Director, Corporate hosts along with panellists Sarah Taylor, Head of Specialist and Practitioner Relations, Dr Sarah Holton, Occupational Health Physician, and Dr Luke Howard, Pulmonary hypertension lead at Hammersmith Hospital, as they discuss; 

  • What is long COVID and why it is important for businesses to make provision for it
  • Our new long COVID care service, how it works and who we’re working with
  • How you can support your employees
