The UCL academic collaboration has existed for over 15 years. The group has conducted research on complex interventions in primary care, psychiatric and community settings involving multidisciplinary teams of clinical researchers in psychiatry, primary care, psychology, palliative care, nursing, epidemiology, health economics, trial management and statistics.
In 2007 the partnership was formalised with the establishment of PRIMENT CTU, a collaboration between the Department of Primary Care and Population Health and Mental Health Sciences Unit led by Professor Irwin Nazareth and Professor Michael King. The strategic direction of the CTU has evolved to include a variety of research areas such as common mental disorders, severe mental illness, blindness, dementia, substance misuse, and methodology. The Biostatistics group led by Dr Rumana Omar from the Department of Statistical Sciences later joined the partnership.
The day to day running of PRIMENT is managed by the steering group:
- Joint Directors: Professor Michael King and Professor Irwin Nazareth
- Deputy Director: Dr Greta Rait
- Joint Statistics Leads: Professor Nick Freemantle and Dr Rumana Omar
The PRIMENT steering group is supported by a scientific and clinical team including trialists, statisticians, health economists, qualitative research experts and trial managers.
