Long Covid Support Scotland is the brainchild of the team behind The Cheyne Gang.
The website provides short, bite sized videos that inform and advise on the wide range of common symptoms experienced by people with Long Covid.
Having recruited interested professionals from disciplines including speech and language therapy, respiratory physiotherapy, and occupational therapy we created the Long Covid Support Scotland website resource which provides videos addressing the common symptoms and offering practical measures such as gentle exercises, singing and relaxation. The videos are designed to allow for pacing and choice.
The website, which was launched in January 2023 includes useful bite-sized videos, resources and practical advice for people who have long covid as well as their families.
