The Academy of Primary Care brings together expertise in primary care research, education, and clinical scholarship to design and deliver the modern vision of person-centred healthcare needed to tackle 21st Century health needs.
Our vision is to make our region known as a centre of excellence in primary care innovation and provision.
We work closely with partners across the Medical School, including the MB BS Medicine team and the Health Professionals Education Unit, as well as our local primary care community of clinicians, training networks, commissioners and providers of services, the RCGP Humber Faculty and members of the public.
The Academy is a member of the Society for Academic Primary Care, the UK national body supporting, promoting and developing the discipline of academic primary care.
"We need primary care 'now more than ever'. Yet also recognise that 'more of the same won’t do'.
"In response, we established the Academy of Primary Care – working with colleagues from across the sector to deliver innovative scholarship that drives excellence in primary care provision."
