Covid-19 Recovery Clinic – for the benefit of patients suffering from long term symptoms.
Blackrock Clinic offers a specialised clinic to provide care for patients suffering from persistent symptoms following recovery from COVID-19.
The clinic is headed by Dr Alex Deegan (Consultant in General, Respiratory & Sleep Disorders Medicine) and supported by our OPD Respiratory and Pathology Departments.
Patients from all age groups and levels of health can present as “unwell” for long periods of time after infection. Whilst it is difficult to predict exactly how long-term outcomes from the COVID virus may manifest, some of the common symptems reported to us are:
- Shortness of breath
- Joint & muscle pain
- Chest pain
- Disturbed sleep pattern
- Lingering loss of sense of taste / smell
