C19-YRS (COVID-19 Yorkshire Rehabilitation Scale)
The C19-YRS (COVID-19 Yorkshire Rehabilitation Scale) is an outcome measure to capture persistent symptoms of Long COVID. The self-report version of C19-YRS gives a symptoms severity score, functional disability score and global health score. NHS England in its National Clinical Guidance (Nov 2020) has advocated its use in all Long COVID clinics being set up in England. NICE guidelines (Dec 2020) have also recommended its use for assessment of Long COVID.
Long COVID is a clinical syndrome of symptoms that persist 4 weeks after contracting COVID-19 illness. Symptoms include breathlessness, fatigue, pain, cognitive problems (brain fog), sleep problems, autonomic dysfunction, functional disability in daily activities and reduced quality of life. There are currently more than 100,000 individuals in the UK (and more than 4 million worldwide) struggling with Long COVID. This is set to rise in the aftermath of the current ongoing second wave of the pandemic.
