The APEx blog is written by the APEx research teams providing updates on local primary care education and research within the University.
90% of patient contact in the NHS takes place in primary care. Short hospital in-patient stays have led to an increased focus on primary care. General practices have identifiable lists of patients, providing an important opportunity for high quality primary care-based research.
Researchers within this group have attracted substantial research income since 2004. We work closely with colleagues elsewhere within the Medical School, across the University (School of Health and Sport Sciences, Mood Disorders Centre), and more widely within the UK (Bristol, Cambridge, Glasgow, Manchester). We collaborate internationally with colleagues in Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand.
