To ask the Scottish Government how it engages with people who have lived experienced of long-term COVID-19 symptoms when devising support for people with long-COVID.
We are working with people living with Long COVID, third sector organisations, NHS Boards and the wider clinical community in Scotland to deepen our understanding of the symptoms and impact of Long COVID to help us continue to tailor the diagnosis and the support, which people need.
In addition, we are providing funding to the University of Stirling to undertake the Share-to-improve: Long Covid experience (COv-VOICES) Study, which aims to amplify the voices of people with lived experience to improve understanding, support, treatment and education.
