Project #9:
What are the patterns of healthcare use in children and young people with SARS-CoV-2 in the 12 months following infection?

  • Type: Research

This project will link ISARIC-4C and OpenSAFELY data in order to follow up hospitalised patients with COVID-19 following discharge. ISARIC-4C is a UK-wide consortium responsible for prospectively collecting data and biological samples from hospitalised patients with COVID-19.

The aims of the project are to investigate children and young people under the age of 19 years with covid-19 to:

  • Assess the feasibility of combining a detailed clinical dataset of patients hospitalised with SARS-CoV-2 (ISARIC-4C dataset) with wide-ranging primary care data (OpenSAFELY dataset)
  • Investigate risk factors for hospital admission and disease severity
  • Investigate outcomes for children hospitalised with covid-19 stratified by severity, compared to those cared for in the community

  • Study leads: Olivia Swann
  • Organisation: ISARIC
