The Research Department of Primary Care and Population Health (PCPH)
At PCPH we value our multidisciplinary approach to both research and teaching
with expertise within the department including clinical primary care,
epidemiology, medical statistics, medical sociology and health
psychology. We have particular methodological strengths in quantitative
and qualitative research and analysis of large clinical databases e.g. CPRD and THIN, trial methodology.
Our department's main strategic aims are:
- To develop and deliver high quality programmes of undergraduate teaching (including community based teaching) and postgraduate education within the broad scope of primary care and population health.
- To undertake a programme of internationally competitive, multi-disciplinary research addressing the management and prevention of disease in individuals and populations in areas of priority to the health of the public.
Together with UCL Mental Health Sciences Unit we run PRIMENT, a registered UK CRC Clinical Trials Unit, one of the few in the UK with expertise in the design, conduct and analysis of trials and other large, well designed studies in primary care and mental health research.
