Leading roles for IHW staff in Scottish primary care research network
General Practice and Primary Care's Prof Frances Mair and Dr Bhautesh Jani have recently been appointed co-leads for the NRS Primary Care Network in Scotland.
The NRS Primary Care Network is the national primary care research network operating in Scotland. The network was established in 2002 as a framework to co-ordinate national research activity in primary care. The overall aim of the network is to increase the amount of research relevant to patient care undertaken in a primary care setting.
The NRS Primary Care Network is funded by the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) to facilitate high quality, funded, research studies, both academic and commercial, which are relevant to primary care. The network facilitates the timely, appropriate, and effective recruitment and follow-up of patients in primary care settings and covers the entire range of clinical research areas.
Frances and Bhautesh will be jointly sharing this responsibility until March 2024. They are keen for the network to have a strong engagement and working relationship with the academic community, other research networks and patient/public.
