Patient Support Post Covid up for Award

Patient Support Post Covid up for Award

A new specialist service aiming at helping patients suffering with the long-term effects of Covid-19 has been shortlisted for a national Health Service Journal Patient Safety Award .

The Sheffield Long Covid Programme, which was set up by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group to support patients with Long Covid, is one of eight finalists in the ‘Service User Engagement and Co-production category’. The award recognises healthcare initiatives which are designed and planned with patients and their families.

Around one in five people who have had a Covid-19 infection go on to develop longer term symptoms, with most reporting symptoms as having disappeared after 12 weeks. However, for a small but significant group of people the effects can be longer lasting requiring more investigation and support.

Resources and supporting information to help people manage their post-Covid recovery are available on Sheffield Teaching Hospital’s website.

The winners of the Patient Safety Awards will be announced at a ceremony on 20 September 2021.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
