At the Post-COVID Recovery Clinic, patients are assessed by a specialist nurse, then based on symptoms, receive immediate access to the most appropriate self-management supports and group learning opportunities based on individual needs.
If assessment identifies the need for a physician consultation as part the patient's recovery, provincial clinic staff will facilitate this, whether it be for more general medicine needs or sub-specialist needs.
You can refer patients with a BC Services Card who have symptoms, persisting three (3) or more months post-COVID which limit their function and quality of life.
Other causes for symptoms must be thoroughly investigated prior to referral (see Pre Referral Diagnostic Checklist (PDF)). Your patient does not need a positive COVID test for referral.
The program continues to care for patients who access Network services virtually. While the number of new patients with long-COVID symptoms is decreasing, these services and resources will be offered into the future.
