The School’s main aim is to increase the evidence base for primary care practice. We will achieve this through:
high quality research to inform the development of clinical practice in primary care;
strategic leadership to support the development of primary care research.
Our research has five programmes:
1. Prevention and early diagnosis of serious disease
2. Monitoring and management of patients with long term conditions
3. Co-morbidity and patient centred outcomes
4. New approaches to patient practitioner interaction
5. New research methods for primary care
