    Dr Manoj Sivan (University of Leeds; and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust)

    Most people in Britain have caught Covid-19, and most of them have fully recovered. But a significant number seem to be suffering from a debilitating post-viral condition known as Long Covid.

    Dr Manoj Sivan is Associate Clinical Professor in the School of Medicine at the University of Leeds, and a Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

    He has led a successful rehabilitation programme for Long Covid patients, resulting in fewer episodes of exhaustion. How has his programme achieved these impressive results? What is the future for Long Covid sufferers? And what is Long Covid anyway? Dr Manoj Sivan will discuss his research and what the pandemic has taught us, beyond the headlines.

    The meeting will be in-person at Seven Arts, 31A Harrogate Road, Leeds LS7 3PD. It will not be broadcast over Zoom.

    The price of everything is going up. Please can everyone who can afford it remember to bring 2 or 3 pound coins along. These small donations are needed to fund the cost of the venue.
