Wellcome Trust PhD Programme for Clinicians
The Wellcome Trust PhD Programme for Clinicians unites four of the strongest primary care departments (Cambridge, Keele, Oxford and Southampton) who are the leading members of the NIHR School for Primary Care Research. We were successful in our application to host the programme for £5.2 million and the first cohort of Fellows will commence in September 2017. This collaborative approach will ensure the highest quality methodological training is delivered, allowing us to train the next generation of primary care scientists.
Evidence Synthesis working group
The Evidence Synthesis Working group (ESWG) is a collaboration of all nine primary care member departments of the School of Primary Care Research.
Primary care is increasingly under considerable pressure to meet the demands of an ageing population and to transform care with more done in the community, against a backdrop of ensuring new technologies are used whilst maintaining budgets. A cross-school collaboration has been formed to address important questions with the aim of delivering a significant number of high impact systematic reviews to underpin effective care in important priority areas for the NHS.
