We recognise that patients who have had COVID-19 may have wider physical and mental health support needs following discharge from inpatient care and intensive care units. NHS England and NHS Improvement is developing guidance for the National Health Service on the appropriate step-down and discharge of COVID-19 patients and that this is expected to be published shortly.
