Dr Duncan has experienced first-hand the devastating impact this virus can have on adults, children and families. She is a mother of 4 amazing kids and she and her children have now unfortunately been infected with COVID several times.
Dr Duncan is concerned about the lack of effective treatments in the UK for both adults and children suffering from Long Covid and the disheartening stories associated with families seeking treatment.
