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. 

Delivering excellent person-centred care in the South West of England


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 (e.g. health research including established primary care research, genomics, personalised healthcare, precision medicine)
  • Develop a focused interest in understanding, researching, and exploring new, integrated models of care which cross traditional boundaries of primary, secondary, mental health and social care.

  • Look at new, innovative ways of delivering high quality integrated care that exploit the potential of technology, a more flexible use of the healthcare workforce and which are able to demonstrate greater cost effectiveness in a testing financial environment.

  • Establish a continuum of education in primary care from the undergraduate to the postgraduate and the established professional.

  • Place 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
