Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.
People with so called Long Covid are being encouraged to download a special app to help with their recovery.
Long Covid or post-Covid syndrome is the name given to the extreme tiredness, dizziness, headaches and a wide range of other unpleasant symptoms which some people experience after the main Coronavirus infection has passed.
Most people will not experience long Covid but for those that do this bilingual first-of-its-kind app has more than 100 videos and advice from therapists, psychologists, dieticians and consultants. App users can also record their symptoms and track their progress.
To download the app search ‘covidrecovery’ on the GooglePlay app store and 'Covid Recovery' on the Apple app store.
