UK Longitudinal Linkage Collaboration (UK LLC) has been set up to bring together information from longitudinal study volunteers with their routine records. This is being done in a secure way to help researchers work to improve health and wellbeing throughout and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
Six National Core Studies have been set up for COVID-19 research, funded by the UK Government. These studies aim to answer pressing COVID-19 questions through accelerating progress in establishing a pioneering health data and research infrastructure for the future.
The UK LLC is operated by the University of Bristol and the University of Edinburgh. It is embedded within the COVID-19 Longitudinal Health and Wellbeing National Core Study.
This work uses data provided by study participants and patients collected through longitudinal studies, or as part of their care and support.
Our Promises to Study Participants have been developed in partnership with study participants and members of our Public Involvement Programme.
