Side Effects/ My story of Long Covid [a patient’s journey] with Anne Thompson


It has been estimated that Covid-19 has left as many as 10% of patients, like Anne Thompson, with debilitating symptoms long after the initial infection has cleared.

In this episode of Side Effects, I talk to Anne about her journey from initial infection through to the long term impact Covid is having on her health and wellbeing. We chat about the support network and online videos (not NHS) that has / is helping her though her illness, and the impact ‘Long Covid’ could have on our healthcare system and messaging?
