Exeter Collaboration for Academic Primary Care (APEx)

Exeter Collaboration for Academic Primary Care (APEx)

The Exeter Collaboration for Academic Primary Care (APEx) is a multidisciplinary team within the College of Medicine and Health. We have strong partnerships with schools of primary care across the country, the NHS and NIHR. 

The mission of the APEx collaboration is to:

  • Establish a research focus on the development and delivery of holistic, person-centred care that builds on existing expertise.
  • Understanding, research, and explore new, integrated models of care which cross traditional boundaries of primary, secondary, mental health and social care.
  • Look at innovative ways of delivering high quality integrated care that exploit the potential of technology.
  • Establish a continuum of education in primary care from the undergraduate to the postgraduate and the established professional, placing research and evidence at the heart of primary care education.


The APEx collaboration brings together important research groups across Exeter's Institute of Health Research
