Narrated Long COVID Diagnosis and Management in Primary Care Video:

This video is a narrated version of the presentation that Dr Harsha Master (GP Lead for COVID Rehabilitation Service for Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust) gave in December 2020 on the diagnosis and management of long COVID in Primary Care to GPs in East and North Hertfordshire CCG. The presentation in part describes a pathway to a Long-COVID Rehab clinic in East and North Hertfordshire. Viewers should be aware of pathways available in their own region.

This presentation is based on papers and articles as well as Dr Master’s clinical experience so far and the aim of the presentation is to gain an understanding of what long COVID is and what should be considered when it is encountered in practice.
