Nottingham Hospitals Charity has today launched their Long Covid Research Appeal which will help clinicians, scientists and researchers at Nottingham hospitals support patients who are still experiencing the effects of Covid-19 weeks, months and potentially over a year later.
#Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on communities and families across Nottingham. But for survivors after the initial infection has passed, the longer-term impacts are far less understood. This is where Long Covid Research comes in.
1 in 5 people in the community will experience Long Covid symptoms, five weeks after an initial COVID-19 infection.
Nottingham is a national centre for excellence in respiratory research
Your local hospitals are leading the way in Covid-19 research, including bringing together our world-renowned expertise in Respiratory Medicine, imaging techniques and rehabilitation as part of the new ‘Nottingham Recovery from COVID-19 Research Platform’ based here in the city.
Our teams in Nottingham are conducting Long Covid research that will lead to new and effective treatments. In particular, this means exploring the effects of the condition for people who did not have significant symptoms when they first caught Covid-19.
Your support will also help those suffering with the effects of Long Covid in Nottingham and right across the UK.
