If children present with specific symptoms following Long COVID then please use existing paediatric referral pathways.

If advice is required then please use the paediatric advice and guidance service.

For children with persistent fatigue for more than 3 months following confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infection then please consider referral to the Paediatric Chronic Fatigue Syndrome service. if criteria are met.

A specific Long COVID service for children is currently being developed and further details will follow on this page.
