OBH are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant by the UK government to fund our project – Outcomes Risk Scores for Covid-19 Vulnerable Populations!

Rapidly repurposing the robust foundations of the Bridges to Health national population segmentation model developed in conjunction with NHS England, Public Health England and Arden and Gem CSU, the development of Covid-19 Risk scores will allow an enhanced understanding of the relative and independent risk factors relating to #Covid-19. This analysis will enable the risk profile of local areas to be accurately assessed and stratified according to the latest emerging evidence, and also support our understanding of the effect of age and ethnicity on Covid-19 complications, independent of comorbidities.

The Innovate UK Covid-19 Rapid Response competition received a record 8,600 applications, investing £40 million to support UK businesses to focus on emerging or increasing needs of society and industries during and following the #Covid-19 pandemic. Find out more about our Covid-19 work here!
