- Around 1 in 4 had symptoms but not a diagnosis, with fatigue, anxiety, and headaches the most severe symptoms, 74% said it affected their mental health and 75% quality of life, yet 53% had not received any help and relied on friends and family.
- Developing a better screening process, creating better pathways between GPs and consultants, along with dedicated community support for those with Long Covid would help those cope much better.
