We would like to warmly thank all the people who have taken part in the research so far.  We appreciate the time that they have given to share their experiences of having long Covid, particularly as many of them were still feeling unwell at the time of the interviews.

Three of the interviews included were conducted as part of the ‘Diversity in Experiences of Covid-19’ study funded by UKRI ESRC (reference ES/V016032/1). We are grateful to Anna Dowrick, Tanvi Rai and Kaveri Qureshi for their help and insight.

We would like to thank the advisory panel members for their input into the project, and Ruth Sanders and Sasha Lewis-Jackson at the Health Experience Research Group at Oxford University for their helpful advice and comments.
