People’s Experiences of long COVID in Sussex: Qualitative engagement


This report sets out what we’ve heard about people’s experiences of long COVID and its impact on their lives, and includes case-studies illustrating the extent and nature of its effects on them.

It is the second of a two-part engagement exercise undertaken by Healthwatch in Sussex exploring the qualitative experiences of long COVID.

In March 2023, Healthwatch published its findings from the first-part, which were the results from a Sussex-wide public survey on people’s wider experiences of long COVID undertaken in late 2022.
