Summary

  • Data and knowledge of long-term effects of COVID-19 are still emerging, and the picture may change from month to month.
  • Sharing experiences, findings, patterns and successful practices is vital to help the medical community as a whole understand COVID-19 more fully.
  • Post-acute COVID/Long COVID symptoms may be atypical for the disease; while the main and best-known symptoms are cough, fever and loss of taste, many more symptoms may arise over the short and long term.
  • Public awareness of long COVID is low; patients may believe they are the only one. Listen and empathise with patients and reassure them that this is an increasingly well recognised syndrome.
  • NICE and SIGN are working with the RCGP to develop a joint guideline on managing persistent symptoms of COVID-19. It is expected to be published by the end of the year.
