We provide medical evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, advice and follow-up for people to aid recovery from COVID-19 at a weekly public clinic led by respiratory physicians.

Key points

  • Caring for people who are recovering from a COVID-19 infection

What we do

Our Post-COVID Clinic provides care, evaluation, advice and referrals to patients who are recovering from a COVID-19 infection. 

Our physicians may also organise relevant indicated medical tests or other referral for other specialist opinions (such as cardiology or neurology).

Our Post-COVID clinic includes a weekly multidisciplinary meeting with respiratory physicians, sleep physicians, liaison psychiatry, general practitioners and allied health specialists such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, exercise physiology, neuropsychology and music therapy to discuss care. 

Most allied health specialists also are part of the ReCov clinical team which works closely with the Post-COVID clinic.
