Canopi is administered by Cardiff University and funded by Welsh Government.

Geraint’s experience

South Wales pharmacist, Geraint Jones, contracted COVID-19 in April 2020. Geraint was living with a multitude of symptoms after his initial COVID infection, which became extremely impactful on his day-to-day life, both as a professional and as a person.

“Prior to contracting COVID, I was fit, well, and would like to think that I was quite resilient; unfortunately, COVID completely changed my physical and mental health.

The support I received from Canopi was invaluable at an uncertain time when no other support was available.

“This has been a complete eye-opener to what support is available for healthcare professionals and I would definitely (and already have!) recommended Canopi to colleagues.”
