Fund Long-Covid multidisciplinary Clinics Nationwide including upskilled medical providers..

* Fund Nationwide multidisciplinary Long Covid Clinics including upskilled medical providers
in acute hospitals/primary care services in every county.
* Hold information for LC sufferers on a central data base.
* Put GP guidelines in place.

Why is this important?

The current HSE plan for Long Covid medical support (MoC) is inadequate. It proposes only EIGHT acute post Covid clinics NATIONWIDE for newly diagnosed people for the first 12 weeks. Should you need continued care there will only be SIX Long Covid clinics NATIONWIDE for sufferers to attend.
One of the problems with the current proposed care plan MoC is if you are newly diagnosed in Donegal you can attend a post Covid clinic for 12 weeks in Letterkenny. Should you need further care you will go on a waiting list with thousands of others for your nearest Long Covid clinic which will be in Galway/Dublin. This problem is mirrored throughout Ireland!
Please click on the map of Ireland and you will see the scarcity of clinic locations nationwide.

I am campaigning together with Joan Collins TD & Long Covid Ireland (LCI) where other sufferers give/get lots of support. Thousands of people are suffering every day. Long Covid doesn’t discriminate, it can affect anyone at any time. Please take a second to sign our petition, help us to help you!
