Earlier this year we published our first policy paper on Long Covid. This raised awareness of the extent and impact of the disease and what we should be doing to tackle it.

It recommends establishing specialist clinics to take the pressure off other areas of the NHS. We also back the creation of a Long Covid care fund and greater research by health and scientific experts into the disease.

The SNP Government must give the disease recognition, and patients the treatment they deserve. Recent figures indicate that three per cent of those working in the NHS across the UK have suffered, or are suffering, from Long Covid. This figure was 1.7% for the Scottish population generally.
