Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals have cared for hundreds of the sickest Covid-19 patients. They have found that for those who have been critically ill, the impact of Covid-19 can last way beyond the initial virus, as patients can experience a range of severe and prolonged mental and physical health issues. This can include post-traumatic stress, memory loss, chronic pain and fatigue, which affect many aspects of day-to-day life.

This is why the Charity is raising funds to set up and run a new initiative called Road to Recovery: Post Covid Mental Health Programme that will support patients with their psychological and physical recovery. As family members play a vital role in the care and ongoing recovery of their loved ones, they will also be supported.

What is Road to Recovery?

Road to Recovery will provide online support to patients through specialist 1:1 counselling and support groups to reduce social isolation and teach skills, such as stress management. A separate support group will also run for families who will benefit from peer support.

Please help us this festive season

By making a donation or taking part in an upcoming event, you will help set up the Road to Recovery programme, making a big difference to hundreds of patients and their families who need it.
