The South Yorkshire cohort
We are collecting data on weight, quality of life, long term conditions, prescribed and over the counter medication, NHS and non-NHS healthcare resource use, ethnicity, and social class.
A large proportion (over 80%) of our cohort have also given their permission to access their routine health records. The cohort also provides academic and industrial research partners with the opportunity to ‘nest’ research studies, and recruit target groups in the cohort.
The results of this longitudinal study will provide evidence to inform NHS and local authority service planning and healthcare service commissioning.
