COVID-19 Longitudinal Health and Wellbeing National Core Study


long COVID Outcomes


The long COVID  Outcome research theme will examine and understand short term and long term physical health, mental health and social outcomes of COVID infection and the subsequent long COVID period.


COVID has profound direct and indirect effects on society and human health. This work package will aim to understand these effects on human physical and mental health and the way patients interact with the healthcare system with the aim of designing interventions targeting populations most at need. Conversely, we use diverse data sources in order to identify and characterize factors influencing the recovery from long COVID .


This will be achieved by harnessing the breadth of national electronic health record data sources linked across care settings and the phenotypic depth of cohort studies.
