"Care for people with long COVID"

About: Forth Valley Community Services

(as a staff member),

I am concerned over the lack of care for individuals with long COVID within Forth Valley.  I have heard that Forth Valley had plans to to address this months before and had released a press statement to this effect.  

I am aware other health boards are providing care and support for people with long COVID.  I have had no success in my attempts to gain information via various avenues.    I feel very disappointed that I am now over 5 months with this condition with no support and no hope that this is going to change.
