Asthma UK and British Lung Foundation: Long COVID Toolkit

Asthma UK and British Lung Foundation have worked with 15 other Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations to create a new tool designed to support those with Long COVID.  You can find it here.

My Long COVID Needs is designed to help people feel better supported to manage the impacts of Long Covid and improve access to support services, helping to address some of the most common concerns that Asthma UK and British Lung Foundation have been hearing through their Helpline.  More than 70 people living with Long COVID helped to test and give feedback on the tool.

People using the tool input information about their physical, practical and emotional concerns and the impact on their day-to-day life, which then brings up useful advice and links to other relevant support services.  It also automates a report that users can give to their GP or healthcare professional, which means people don’t have to tell their Long COVID story multiple times to different healthcare professionals.
