Meet the team

The original C19-YRS paper questionnaire 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 is continuously being improved and iterated over time as we learn more about the condition using feedback directly from patients and clinicians using both the paper and digital C19-YRS with ELAROS and by carefully considering other emerging research. Any changes to the questionnaire will be rapidly implemented into the digital version for those who wish to adopt it. The paper version that has been recommended for routine use in December 2020 can be found here.
