Employers wishing to minimise the impact of Long Covid on both their employees and their organisation, should ensure that their health and wellbeing programmes include holistic and personalised support for staff for as long as they need it, according to RedArc’s team of nurses.
Long Covid, a condition currently affecting approximately 60,000 people in the UK – which will inevitably continue to rise - and characterised by a variety of physiological and psychological issues, including fatigue, breathlessness, cognitive blunting (‘brain fog’) and pain, requires practical, medical and emotional support, similar to that already offered by employers for conditions such as cancer, ME and diabetes.
Christine Husbands, managing director for RedArc, said: “This is clearly an emerging situation and one which is likely to be challenging for employers, in terms of providing support for those with this new relatively unknown condition and its long-term implications. Offering practical help and emotional support for those diagnosed with the condition will help ensure that staff receive the most appropriate course of treatment, helping to steer them back on the path to recovery.”
