Specialist young people’s services for long COVID care

The NHS is setting up specialist long COVID services for children and young people as part of a £100 million expansion of care for those suffering from the condition.

The 15 new paediatric hubs will draw together experts on common symptoms such as respiratory problems and fatigue who can directly treat youngsters, advise family doctors or others caring for them or refer them into other specialist services and clinics. Some £30 million will also go to GPs to improve diagnosis and care for those with long COVID while the new investment will also boost online services.
