|Title||Bromley Council event: Long Covid – What It Is, How To Manage It and the Employer’s Responsibility|
For some people, COVID-19 can cause symptoms that last for weeks or months after the infection has gone. This is referred to as post-COVID-19 syndrome or ‘long Covid’ – the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) defines long Covid as lasting for more than 12 weeks.
Details of how many people are affected by long Covid are still emerging. However, a study published in June by Imperial College London, of half a million adults in England who reported having Covid, found that over a third still had at least one symptom 12 weeks later. When these findings are applied to all the people in England who have been ill with Covid, this could mean more than two million people may have experienced long Covid.
If long Covid qualifies as a disability, employers have a positive duty to consider what, if any, reasonable adjustments can be made to assist.
In response, this awareness webinar has been developed and will be delivered on two dates, ‘Long Covid – What It Is, How To Manage It and the Employer’s Responsibility’, delivered by colleagues in LBB Public Health, LBB HR and Bromley CCG.
Dates and times: 22nd September, 15:00 – 16:30 and 6th October, 15:00 – 16:30
Platform: MS Teams
Target Group: All Staff including managers, partner agencies and foster carers
