Julie Hesmondhalgh started this petition to UK Parliament

We want the UK government to recognise the suffering caused by long Covid, and properly invest in research, rehabilitation, medical and financial support for the 18% of Covid survivors who have suffered devastating health issues, physical, neurological and mental, for up to eight months, with zero support. There are a few clinics (none in the North West) but sufferers lucky enough to get an appointment report that the support they offer is perfunctory at best. This is a public health scandal and we urge the UK government to address the particular issues around long Covid and properly invest in research, intervention, social care and financial support. We must not leave it until people’s despair leads them to drastic measures. Please act now.
