"No update from the long covid clinic"

About: Respiratory medicine / Long covid clinic

(as the patient),

After a referral from Nottingham City Hospital to the Long Covid Clinic, I find that nearly a year since I was first referred, I am no further forward. My health has been impacted since I first contracted Covid almost two years ago.

I have spoken with the clinic who told me the appointment would be in a couple of weeks but since I was told last June that I needed investigation for abnormalities since contracting covid, I have not heard a thing and I am becoming increasingly worried about neurological symptoms as well as the other debilitating symptoms I have.

I have become so ill that I have had to reduce my working hours. I would just like to know what is happening and when.
