Professions that sit in the rehab teams

Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapists (OT) look at functional activities including routines, work, life roles, personal and domestic activity management and how your current condition impacts on these areas. This may involve physical, cognitive, social and psychological aspects. OT’s can support with fatigue management, work rehabilitation, appropriate adjustments to lifestyle, environment and supporting you and your family to optimise your abilities whilst recovering from the effects of long covid.

The physiotherapists in the hubs can help to explore your physical problems post covid i.e. breathlessness and exercise tolerance; work with you to develop a breathing exercise program; start a reconditioning program with you; and sign post to other physiotherapy teams like musculoskeletal physiotherapy as required. 

In the hubs we have a mix of psychologists and psychology assistants.  The psychology team work with the other professions in the team to support engagement in rehab, support coming to terms with Post COVID syndrome and support managing any cognitive problems.  The psychology team may not necessarily see every patient directly, however they work closely with the team to support your needs.
