Accessing the data

The archive is aimed at those with an interest in primary care research, for example:

  • individuals considering applying for a doctoral or post-doctoral fellowship and looking to work with consultations data around topics such as the diagnostic process or mental health
  • teams with a requirement to do research initiation work with consultations data prior to a larger grant application to demonstrate proof of concept
  • individuals needing to develop and test methodological innovations such as new scales to assess communication between GPs and patients

The archive is also aimed at educationalists interested in the development of medical or research training materials e.g. for GP consultation skills teaching or for training in methodological techniques for analysing communication in primary care.
