Support for COVID-19 Survivors

Our services during COVID-19

As well as continuing to provide our services to people with chest, heart and stroke conditions, we are now also supporting those recovering from COVID-19.

We have decades of experience in providing professional support and self-help resources to people affected by lung, heart and stroke conditions. So, if you’re recovering from the Coronavirus, we’re here to make sure you have the support you need while you regain lung function and general health. To do this, we’ve just launched Northern Ireland’s first community support service for COVID-19 survivors – the COVID-19 Recovery Service.

COVID-19 Recovery Service

The COVID-19 Recovery Service is aimed at helping people recovering from COVID-19 deal with the physical and psychological problems caused by the illness. It has also been specially developed to include practical support that will help to improve lung and general health.

This programme of targeted support consists of a six-week programme which will initially be delivered by phone, video call and online. As COVID-19 restrictions relax and safety guidance permits, we’ll then provide this support face-to-face.

COVID-19 survivors can be referred to the COVID-19 Recovery Service in the first instance by a medical professional, or you can self-refer by emailing chestsupportni@nichs.org.uk.
