Who is the programme for?

ENO Breathe has been specifically developed for people recovering from COVID-19, who are still suffering from breathlessness and its associated anxiety.

The programme is inclusive and open to all ethnicities, levels of spoken English, religious backgrounds and identities.

No prior experience or interest in singing is required to take part.

Participants need to be available for the six sessions and aged 18 or over.

There is no cost to take part in the programme.


ENO Breathe is currently only available for patients who have been medically assessed by a participating post-COVID clinic or referral centre in England.

  • If you are a patient who had COVID-19 and are still suffering from breathlessness more that 8 weeks after your illness, please ask your GP to refer you to your local specialist post-COVID clinic. Once medically assessed by a post-COVID clinic, they can then refer you onto the programme. To view a list of all current participating post-COVID clinics and referral centres, click here.
  • If you are a social prescribing link worker, your patient will need to have been medically assessed by their local post-COVID clinic to be referred.
  • If you are a Healthcare professional and would like to be able to refer your patients onto the programme, please get in touch with info.breathe@eno.org .
