Cheshire West and Chester Council is interested in hearing the views and experiences of residents who have been diagnosed or have suspected (but undiagnosed) 'long COVID'. Your input will help us to make sure that as a council we offer appropriate services and support, and that residents are able to access the information they need.
We are also interested in hearing from close family members/friends of those who have been affected by 'long COVID'.
'Long COVID', also known as post-Covid-19 fatigue syndrome, is a long-term condition that some people suffer after contracting Covid-19. Symptoms vary but usually include fatigue, persisting high temperature, breathlessness, cognitive impairment (such as memory loss), generalised pain, and mental health problems.
NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) defines 'long COVID' (or post COVID-19 syndrome) as signs and symptoms that develop during or following an infection consistent with Covid-19, continue for more than 12 weeks and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis.
The survey should take around 5-10 minutes to complete.
Please note, survey responses will not be monitored daily, therefore please contact your GP with any immediate concerns regarding your health and wellbeing.
You can also find support and advice at www.livewell.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk.
