We run a long Covid service to support and manage patients living in Bolton suffering with the long term effects of COVID-19.
Long COVID is recognised as the signs and symptoms that develop during or after an infection consistent with COVID-19, and continue for more than 4 weeks after the acute illness stage, and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis.
To refer into the service please contact our Community Hub on 01204 331155 between 8am and 4pm Monday to Friday, or email Intermediatetierservices@boltonft.nhs.uk.
Once we receive a referral, we send out a self assessment for you to complete and return to us. This enables us to ensure we provide the right support for you and with the right team.
