As you may know, the Federal Health Minister has initiated a Parliamentary Inquiry into ‘Long COVID and Repeated COVID Infections,’ and we will be preparing a submission to the Inquiry. We’d love to hear your views, which we will reflect in the submission we are writing.
Specifically, we would be keen to hear your thoughts and insights on the following:
1. The patient experience in Australia of Long COVID and/or repeated COVID infections, particularly diagnosis and treatment (this is the first of the Inquiry’s Terms of Reference)
2. The health, social, educational and economic impacts in Australia on individuals who develop Long COVID and/or have repeated COVID infections, their families, and the broader community, including groups that face a greater risk of serious illness due to factors such as age, existing health conditions, disability and background
