We have teamed up with Nuffield Health to bring their online COVID-19 rehabilitation programme to policing.

This programme is designed to support you if you are finding it difficult to recover from the long-term effects of COVID-19. Offering a unique blend of physical and emotional support, the self-managed programme can be tailored to your individual rehabilitation needs and provides the tools to help you recover and return to good health and wellbeing.

Is this programme for you?

If, while recovering from COVID-19, you are experiencing any of the below symptoms, then this programme is here to help:

  • fatigue, muscle pain and weakness
  • shortness of breath
  • anxiety and low mood
  • memory loss
  • sleep problems
  • generally, not being able to do the activities or return to the lifestyle you had pre-illness

 

What does the programme consist of?

It is a 12-week programme that is self-managed and delivered remotely through the online ‘Rehabilitation Hub’ which is available via your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Three digital journals will guide you through the programme and provide information, techniques and activities on areas to aid recovery such as:

  • coping with fatigue

A typical week of the rehabilitation programme consists of the following weekly elements:
