About the Project

Working with the respiratory team at Croydon NHS Trust, the project aims to explore the characteristics of COVID patients, using clinical databases to define the features of the COVID patient who goes on to develop long COVID symptoms. The treatment utilised for these patients would be reviewed and new interventions designed and tested to see if a pattern of ‘best care’ could be developed for supporting the care of long COVID sufferers.

The aim of this research is thus to evaluate the physiological aspects of long COVID, in terms of risk factors, symptomology and current assessment and management strategies in order to optimise it

The project will mostly apply qualitative and quantitative analysis methodology.
