In it for the long haul: an update on living with Long Covid

On International Long Covid Awareness Day, we reflect on the challenges of living with Long Covid in relation to non-evidence based infection prevention and control guidelines, the difficulties accessing appropriate medical care, and the lack of support in place when returning to work. Dr Alison Twycross, Editor in Chief of Evidence-Based Nursing, talks to Dr Michaela Barnard, nurse and trustee at Supporting Healthcare Heroes UK.
