We are delighted that three SAPC members – Professor Trish Greenhalgh, Oxford; Professor Paul Little, Southampton; and Professor Tim Peters, Bristol – have all been selected to serve on REF Sub-panel 2 (Public Health, Health Services and Primary Care) and one SAPC member - Professor Frank Sullivan, on REF Sub-panel 1 (Clinical medicine). Taking this on represents an enormous amount of work, but is essential to support and promote academic primary care. Our congratulations and thanks to each of you.
Congratulations to Dr Andrew Carson-Stevens, Cardiff University, who is this year's winner of the Yvonne Carter award for outstanding new researcher awarded by RCGP and SAPC.
Andrew is based at Cardiff University and leads the Patient Safety work package at the PRIME (Primary and Emergency Care Research) Centre Wales.
