Meet the C19-YRS team

The original C19-YRS patient-reported outcome measure was developed by a team of clinicians and academics from The University of Leeds, Leeds Community Healthcare and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trusts and Airedale NHS Trust during the first wave of COVID-19.

The core team has been supported by research-active clinicians across the UK and internationally to take soundings and gather feedback in order to rapidly develop the most effective screening tool to assess the complex mix of persistent symptoms experienced by patients due to COVID-19. 

The C19-YRS has been iterated over time and adopted globally, digitally enhanced by ELAROS and recommended in national guidelines for Long Covid / post-Covid syndrome around the world. The self-report can be found here.
