This is important for any healthcare professional involved in the management of people impacted by the effects of COVID-19. You can access the framework document at the bottom of this page.

The NHS Wales Rehabilitation framework provides assistance to service planning for the rehabilitation of people affected both directly and indirectly by COVID-19. The framework was developed by Welsh Government and published in June 2020. It identifies the following four cohorts and focuses on the rehabilitation needs of people who have been directly and indirectly affected by COVID-19:

  1. Recovering from COVID-19
  2. Awaiting paused planned care
  3. Avoided access to care during the pandemic
