Motion ref. S6M-04472.1

Long COVID - Amendment

Submitted by: Jackie Baillie, Dumbarton, Scottish Labour.
Date lodged: Wednesday, May 18, 2022

Supported by: Paul Sweeney
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Thursday, May 19, 2022

As an amendment to motion S6M-04472 in the name of Humza Yousaf (Long COVID), leave out from “recognises the role” to end and insert “regrets the Scottish Government’s complete lack of urgency in delivering its £10 million Long COVID Support Fund, which was announced in September 2021, with nothing allocated before 1 April 2022; further regrets that no network of specialist long COVID clinics or specialist clinical pathways have been established for individuals recovering from the virus and living with recurring symptoms, in contrast to the steps taken in other parts of the UK; notes the Scottish Government’s latest announcement, but recognises that it falls short of what is required, and calls on it to take immediate steps to increase and roll out funding to NHS boards, working in partnership with local authorities, to ensure that people living with long COVID are accessing the right support and treatment; recognises the importance of developing services in partnership with those living with long COVID, such as Long COVID Scotland; calls on the Scottish Government to ensure that everyone experiencing long COVID is able to access appropriate occupational health support to enable them to return to employment, and considers that further clinical research will improve understanding of the long-term effects of COVID-19 and identify effective treatments."
