Plymouth - Department of Primary Care

We carry out research that makes improvements in general practice, and to health care in the community, within visible timeframes. 

Our research is conducted through the involvement of practitioners, and the public, who are instrumental in helping to develop focused research questions and in designing projects. 

We use a range of research methods, qualitative and quantitative, to solve pressing and often complex research problems. 

Our research is often directed towards those individuals who are the most excluded or disempowered, have mental health problems and have difficulty accessing services.
