At Parkside, we understand that Covid-19 symptoms can have a debilitating and long-term effect long after the initial infection has passed. That’s why we’ve developed a bespoke ‘Post-Covid service’, bringing together our experienced specialists in our state-of-the-art facilities to provide a personalised service.
This is a unique service provided by only a handful of specialist clinics and hospitals in the UK.
The new service has been designed for patients who have had Covid-19 and will help you return to full health.
Consisting of an extended Private GP appointment, a range of diagnostic scans and onward referrals if necessary, the one-stop Post-Covid service is tailored to support you at every stage of your recovery from Covid-19.
Led by our expert Private GP team with input from a specialist multidisciplinary team, the Post-Covid service will provide a holistic assessment to help you return to full health and better understand the long term impact Covid-19 has had on your body and mind.
All scans and investigations take place at Parkside within our state-of-the-art facilities, meaning patients do not need to travel elsewhere.
Please note: our Post-Covid service is not for patients who have tested positive for Covid-19 within the last four weeks. If you have tested positive, you must follow the latest government guidelines and self-isolate.
Who can use this service?
This service is for patients who still have symptoms or have detected a change in their body after having Covid-19, typically over a month after having the infection. These ongoing symptoms can include fatigue, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, memory problems, nausea and joint pain.
The Post-Covid service is not for patients who have tested positive for Covid-19.
What happens at the post-Covid service?
Our private post-Covid assessments includes a range of tests to help you get back to full health, including:
- A comprehensive pre-consultation review of how Covid has impacted you
- Extended GP appointment with one of our specialist Private GPs
- Medical history
- Lifestyle and mental health review
- Physical examination
- Blood pressure and oxygen saturation check
- A comprehensive panel of blood tests
- Further scans eg chest x-ray as necessary
- Follow-up GP appointment
Following your consultation, our expert GPs will provide you with a detailed report consisting of recommendation or referral to other service if required, eg physiotherapy / respiratory / psychiatry / rheumatology.
Are virtual appointments offered for this service?
As scans and investigations need to be undertaken in order to learn more about the impact of Covid-19 on your health, the first appointment needs to be in person. Follow-up appointments will be conducted virtually.
