We have a team of research facilitators supporting research teams throughout the UK identifying suitable sites from local knowledge for studies:
They facilitate study set-up and support local GP practices and community pharmacists. We recognise the importance of patient involvement within primary care research and our facilitators actively engage with patient partnership Groups (PPGs) to raise awareness of research.
We have a team of specially qualified research nurses who are based within local GP practices providing advice and expertise to primary care practitioners and researchers. We also have a team of GP Research Champions raising awareness of primary care research within the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and local GP practices.
