COVID-19 Rehabilitation Programme

What is the COVID-19 Rehabilitation Programme?

The programme is a blend of physical and emotional support designed to help an ever-growing number of people who are finding it difficult to recover from the long-term effects of COVID-19.

We’re offering the programme free to participants. As the UK’s largest healthcare charity, working to build a healthier nation, we recognise there’s an unmet need to support people with rehabilitation after contracting the virus.

Our range of experts means we can offer you personalised advice to help you with your rehabilitation and support you in your journey back to good health and wellbeing. The programmes include topics such as, coping with fatigue, managing breathlessness, anxiety and low mood, improving sleep and eating for recovery.

How does the programme work?

  • The programme runs for 12 weeks and is led by our Rehabilitation Specialists
  • Each programme will have 10 participants
  • Weeks 1-6 are completed virtually at home
  • Weeks 7-12 take place at your Fitness and Wellbeing Centre
  • Each week, the programme will include:
    • 1-2-1 call with your Rehabilitation Specialist
    • Exercises sessions
    • Emotional wellbeing focus

Is the programme for you?

If, while recovering from COVID-19, you’re experiencing any of the below symptoms, then this programme is here to help you:

  • Fatigue, muscle pain and weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Anxiety and low mood
  • Memory loss
  • Sleep problems
  • Generally, not being able to do the activities or return to the lifestyle you had pre-illness.

How can you take part in the programme?

If you have had a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis, you can apply for the programme by completing an application form. As weeks 7 - 12 of the programme are delivered at the gym, you will need to be able to travel to your local Fitness and Wellbeing Centre.

We’re expanding our programme to reach more people across the UK. And will be launching further programmes in April 2021.
