The Willows-DMU Centre for Primary Care Research will bring together academics and expert primary care clinicians to drive innovation that will improve patient care.

The primary care sector has seen unprecedented changes as a result of the Covid-19, as technology is increasingly used to manage appointments, diagnoses and medicine delivery. 

Research into how this trend will affect patients, particularly the elderly and those without easy access to digital devices, has never been more necessary.
