Long COVID affects people in very different ways. There are lots of different symptoms, and there’s no clear relationship between the nature of a person’s COVID-19 and the likelihood that they’ll be affected with long COVID. It can be a confusing, frustrating condition, but if someone in your team is suffering with long COVID, they shouldn’t feel lost or alone. We can help.
Most people fully recover from COVID-19. But for some, symptoms can continue for weeks, or even months, after catching the virus.
When managing long COVID, it’s important to remember that one size doesn’t fit all. There are numerous symptoms, which can range in severity and duration.

To help your people get back to feeling like themselves again, we’ve developed our long COVID service. Available for members aged 18 and over, it’s designed to support them on the road to recovery and provide the most clinically appropriate treatment.
So, once an employee has been referred for long COVID support by a GP, specialist or an approved occupational health clinician, they can call our team. We’ll help get them on their road to recovery. Whether that’s physiotherapy, a referral to a specialist consultant or, where clinically appropriate, a 12-week remote rehabilitation programme.
*Physiotherapy and specialist consultations will affect the member’s outpatient limit and/or excess.
**The rehabilitation programme will affect the member’s excess.
