Ask your MSP to support the Long Covid Care Now campaign

No one should fight coronavirus alone. But that's what's happening all across Scotland right now.

Thousands of people are living with the long term effects of this devastating virus - Long Covid - and are not getting the full support they desperately need to rebuild their lives.

For months they've faced an exhausting battle to get help. Enough is enough. We need to see action.  

Please email your MSP to call for the Scottish Government to introduce a National Long Covid Support Service.

Lives have been turned upside down by Long Covid.  For months now, people have been experiencing a daily battle with anything from breathing problems, anxiety, numbness to fatigue that makes the smallest of tasks a struggle. It has changed lives and affected their mental health. 

Join our call for the Scottish Government to introduce a National Long Covid Support Service which would: 

  • Bring the NHS and charities together to offer a seamless package of care for people with Long Covid. 
  • Offer specialist one-stop clinics, based on the model adopted in England. 
  • Provide longer-term one-to-one support and advice to help people manage the impact of Long Covid on their lives and mental wellbeing. 

We will only get action if you show your MSPs how much this matters.  Please support the campaign and make sure that no one fights coronavirus alone. 

Here's the text of the email that we will send for you:

No one should fight coronavirus alone. But that is what's happening for thousands of people living with the long-term health effects of Covid - known as Long Covid - in Scotland. 

Around 1 in 10 people who experienced Covid are estimated to be living with Long Covid. One day they were just like you - going to work and enjoying life with their loved ones. Then everything changed. 

People's lives have become a daily battle with anything from breathing problems, anxiety, numbness to fatigue that makes the smallest of tasks a struggle. Long Covid is taking so much from people. It is affecting their lives and their mental health. They need help.    

Will you support Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland's "Long Covid Care Now" campaign, calling for the Scottish Government to establish a National Long Covid Support Service?

To show your support can you please write to the First Minister and Health Secretary urging them to introduce a National Long Covid Support Service that: 

  • Brings the NHS and charities together to offer a seamless package of care for people with Long Covid. 
  • Offers specialist one-stop clinics, based on the model adopted in England. 
  • Provides longer-term one-to-one support and advice to help people manage the impact of Long Covid on their lives and mental wellbeing. 

Please support the campaign and make sure that everyone with Long Covid gets the support they need to rebuild their lives.
