Coronavirus: Rehab for ‘traumatised’ COVID-19 survivors after infections cross peak – goqradio.com

The NHS Seacole Center at Headley Court in Surrey is used as a temporary service for patients who are recovering from coronavirus and no longer need care in an acute care hospital.

It is also used to treat those who have the virus and can no longer cope with their symptoms at home.

Patients receive treatments for tracheotomy wounds and therapy to restore heart, lung and muscle function. and help with mental health problems such as PTSD and anxiety.

Others may need help with their language and social assistance for basic everyday needs.

Sir Simon Stevens, NHS CEO, said: "As our country now emerges from the initial high point of the corona virus we now see a significant new need for rehab and aftercare for COVID patients who went through this terrible disease. "

Doctors recognize that COVID-19 is more than just a respiratory disease. It can be a devastating multi-system illness. Survivors can suffer from heart failure and strokes.

And after long stays on ventilators in an intensive care unit, longer-term effects on mental health must be taken into account, which may be associated with PTSD, cognitive damage and the resulting fear.

The extent of rehabilitation for these survivors of the coronavirus is enormous.

Health Minister Matt Hancock said: "We know that for some people, this can be a debilitating disease with lasting effects.

" The new NHS Seacole Center is only the beginning because the NHS is the one Community support rapidly increased to help those affected return to their relatives and get well. "

Grandfather Brian Harvey, 69, is one of many patients who need treatment after serious complications from the coronavirus .

He was in a coma for four weeks after suffering from kidney failure and blood clots in the lungs.

He is now receiving phy siotherapy and speech and speech therapy while staying at the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

"My wife had a call on April 12 to say I might not get through the night," he said.

"[My family] were traumatized and thought it might be the end for me – but I did it."

Mr. Harvey believes that his rehabilitation will take about a year.

"Until For me, the greatest trauma is where you were previously so active, but now you can't reach for anything and you have to get someone else to get something for you," he said.

The NHS Seacole Center is Small But an important first step in helping patients like Mr. Harvey.

The disused military hospital in Surrey has been repurposed for on-site care, and NHS England says additional regional specialized rehab centers will open.

But some health professionals have told Sky News that any delay in launching a national program may occur. An already bad situation is much worse.

Julia Scott, executive director of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists, said: "We have to act very quickly.

" Occupational therapists are part of a family of allied health care professionals and today more than ever, allied health care professionals are joining needed at the forefront of this rehab trip.

"We need investments in the provision of services so that there are enough therapists who are able to respond to needs.

" We do not want people on waiting lists and backups

NHS surgeon Dr. Alice Murray said that many patients "need long-term care after discharge, which is rarely the case." Available at all in the NHS, if at all.

"We have to do better," she said. "There are phenomenal examples of units that do excellent regional work as integrated rehabilitation teams, but that needs to be repeated at the national level."

Next week from Monday to Thursday, Dermot Murnaghan will be After the Pandemic: Our New World – a series of special live programs on how our world will look after the end of the pandemic.
