We conduct research which answers important quality and safety questions in primary care. Our research aims to improve primary care systems to produce meaningful impacts on patient care and health policy. Our novel research on improving patients health literacy as a patient safety strategy is supported through our PPI-E networks. We have links with Warwick Business School to support this theme by providing human factors and NHS management expertise.
