Long Covid Clinic

Long COVID Clinic at Napiers Edinburgh

For some people, contracting Covid-19 is just the beginning of a debilitating and frightening journey. This journey often seems to make no sense and can find sufferers yo-yo-ing between periods of acute illness and extreme fatigue and then periods of better health. For some, there is no respite at all. 

Our herbal medicine team are seeing an increasing number of patients coming to Napiers Clinic in Edinburgh with Long Covid symptoms and, because of this, we have now set up a Long Covid Clinic, specifically to support those experiencing this devastating, and very real, health issue. 

Senior medical herbalist at Napiers Edinburgh Clinic and Fellow of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, Dee Atkinson, has written about Long Covid and her experience of supporting a Long Covid patient in her clinic, here

The CLAID clinic is a co-operative group of Napiers-associated herbalists that specialise in the treatment of Covid and Long Covid. The clinic specialises in the long-term effects of bacterial, viral and fungal infections.
