What is primary health care?

Primary health care is the first point of contact for health care for most people. It is mainly provided by GPs (general practitioners), but community pharmacists, opticians and dentists are also primary health care providers.

The Centre for Academic Primary Care is a leading centre for primary care research and teaching in the UK. We are part of Bristol Medical School.
