Data on the functional outcomes of patients surviving an intensive care unit (ICU) admission for COVID-19 is sparse. However, anecdotal experience across a number of London ICUs indicates that a high proportion has significant physical functional impairment (more than 50 % of those discharged from ICU) and the range of impairments is diverse.There is an immediate need to provide specialist, effective and targeted rehabilitation for patients recovering from the disease to improve functional outcomes and to ensure they make the best possible recovery.
