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.

Manchester - Centre for Primary Care B

Primary care research and postgraduate teaching in Manchester covers a broad range of policy and practice themes relevant to primary care and the NHS. The group is a large and lively complement of multi-disciplinary researchers interested in researching a wide range of topics relevant to primary care and policy.
