Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on communities and families across Nottingham. But for survivors after the initial infection has passed, the longer-term impacts are far less understood. This is where Long Covid Research comes in.
Our Long Covid Research Appeal will help clinicians, scientists and researchers at Nottingham hospitals support patients who are still experiencing the effects of Covid-19 weeks, months and potentially over a year later.
1 in 5 people in the community will experience Long Covid symptoms, five weeks after an initial COVID-19 infection. Help us support those who are still feeling the effects.

We need your help to fund vital Long Covid research
The more we understand Long Covid, the better our hospitals can treat it. With your support, our researchers can help improve treatment and quality of life for Long Covid patients here in Nottingham and across the UK.
With this Appeal, we want to raise £50,000 to fund critical research into Long Covid, with the team of researchers in Nottingham leading the way.
More specifically, our Appeal will fund:
- A dedicated Long Covid Research fellow who will explore muscle fatigue in people who have been admitted to hospital with Covid-19 infection.
- The use of state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to conduct Long Covid research.
- A project also using metabolic and inflammatory laboratory techniques to understand muscle fatigue in Long Covid patients.
- Guidance for improved rehabilitation and recovery programmes for people with muscle fatigue.
Whether you have experienced Long Covid yourself, have an interest in respiratory conditions or have simply been in awe of the incredible care shown by our NHS staff – this is your chance to make a real difference to patients’ lives across Nottingham and beyond.
