Today, UKRI and NIHR are announcing £8.4 million funding for one of the world’s largest studies into the long-term physical and mental health impacts of coronavirus on hospitalised patients. Results from the UK-wide study will inform the development of new and better measures to treat and rehabilitate patients hospitalised with COVID-19.
