Home Affairs Correspondent

For coronavirus patients who have been treated in hospital, being discharged is often not the end of their ordeal.

Especially for the thousands of people who have been critically ill and ventilated, many of them needing extensive rehabilitation.

At the national velodrome of Wales in Newport, a new service has been launched to help people through their physical and psychological recovery.

It is also enabling survivors to share their experiences with others going through the same process.
