Welcome to Long Covid Support Scotland
The Long Covid Support Scotland website is designed to help people living with Long Covid. The site provides short, bite sized videos that inform and advise on the wide range of common symptoms experienced by people with Long Covid.
Please read our disclaimer before using the resources on this site.
Pauline Waugh, co-founder of Long Covid Support Scotland and The Cheyne Gang, recently appeared as a guest on Scotland's Singing for Health Network's podcast. You can listen to the episode on the YouTube link above, and you can find out more about Scotland's Singing for Health Network (including a map of all groups in the network) here.
What is Long Covid?
Long Covid is an illness that occurs after a Covid-19 infection. The symptoms include fatigue, breathlessness, headaches, brain fog, palpitations, anxiety, poor sleep and loss of the senses of taste and smell. To be classed as Long Covid, the symptoms must be present for at least twelve weeks.
The Cheyne Gang
Long Covid Support Scotland was created by The Cheyne Gang. We run singing for breathing groups across Central Scotland in Edinburgh, Glasgow & The Borders. We are currently setting up a group in The Highlands and plan to start groups in other areas across Scotland in the future.
