Long COVID: a List of resources for further information

A list of information resources (including a mixture of books, websites and videos) to help you manage your recovery from COVID-19. Not all the information will be relevant to your particular symptoms but hopefully some of it will provide you with the help and support you need to manage them. This is a long list so it’s best to pick and choose the information that’s most relevant to supporting your personal recovery.
