COVID aftercare: a short film on patients' experiences

This link will take you to a short video (an anmimation, lasting around 5 minutes) about some recent research on the aftercare of people who have been in Intensive Care due to COVID. The researchers interviewed a number of patients about their time in ICU, and the care they received after hospital discharge. Common problems included a lack of information about what to expect during recovery, and a lack of joined-up care after getting home. The research was done by a team of researchers at the University of Manchester, together with ICUsteps.
