Post Covid Assessment Service (Barnet)

Read more about this page below

Barnet Post COVID Service provides a comprehensive therapy and medical assessment following a referral from primary or secondary care to support physical, emotional, and psychosocial needs of those living with Long Covid. We provide our assessment in a face-to-face clinic. We also provide an online video link and telephone review for a small number of patients who are not able to make it to clinic.

Post-COVID syndrome or “Long Covid” is defined as signs and symptoms that develop during or following an infection consistent with COVID-19 which continue for more than 12 weeks and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis.

We currently accept referrals for anyone with ongoing signs and symptoms from 4 weeks following their initial suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection. Symptoms are wide-ranging and fluctuating, and can include breathlessness, fatigue, headaches, brain fog, anxiety and stress.

We are a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) comprising of a clinical lead respiratory specialist, respiratory consultants, specialist respiratory physiotherapists, an occupational therapist, a psychologist and rehabilitation assistant. We work very closely with University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) as part of our larger MDT dealing with complex post-COVID patients.

We provide post-COVID assessment and rehabilitation through a self-management approach for symptoms including breathlessness, fatigue, anxiety, depression, neuromuscular weakness, reduced exercise tolerance, and brain fog.  

You will receive a holistic assessment for breathing pattern disorders, psychological impact, fatigue, basic autonomic response and exercise tolerance. This assessment is to understand the impact of long covid symptoms on your everyday functions and what support may be required, to facilitate a steady recovery.

Barnet post-COVID rehabilitation will include:

  • Introduction to the Living with Covid Recovery App.
  • Advice and guidance on the management of your current symptoms.
  • Signposting or referral to other community services if this is needed.
  • Weekly online group consultations on different topics with our team.
  • Monthly online peer support group led by a patient expert.
  • Onwards referral to members of a multi-disciplinary team at Central London Community Hospital NHS Trust or University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH).
