There is mounting medical evidence and patient testimony to show that some who contract Covid-19, can take a long time – often months – to overcome the debilitating effects of the virus, after initially falling ill.
The ongoing symptoms can include breathlessness, chest pain, brain fog and anxiety among others, according to a recent report from NHS England.
To help Covid convalescents, and anyone else who’s feeling generally run-down and anxious, about the coming winter, a team of Occupational Therapists at the Recovery Colleges of West London NHS Trust and Central and North West London Foundation Trust, (CNWL), have joined forces to create a series of free webinars.
Alison Hoble, Occupational Therapist and manager of West London NHS Trust’s Recovery college said:
Being part of this important collaboration with our neighbouring trust (CNWL), has been a really positive experience.
We hope that the webinars will be helpful, not only to those experiencing ongoing symptoms, but also for those involved in supporting them.
• Managing anxiety
• Introduction to mindfulness
• Understanding low mood
• Let’s talk about sleep
• How to manage tiredness and fatigue
• Returning to work support
• Health routines during the pandemic
• Coping with Christmas time
When are the webinars?
Starting Tuesday 27 October 2020, the webinars will run weekly, every Tuesday, until 22 December 2020, from 2pm to 4pm.
