Scottish ­Government has been branded “too little, too late” after it emerged that health boards haven’t been told to set up specialist clinics.

And parents of children with the condition claim nothing has been done to help them. Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said the new fund, which will be split between all 14 NHS regions, “will offer the flexibility to design and deliver the best care for those with Long Covid, tailored to specific needs”.

Before the announcement last week, only one health board had received any help.In June the Sunday Mail revealed there were 87,000 ­victims of the condition north of the Border and since then we have shared stories of people of all ages who have been calling for Long Covid clinics to open as they have.
