Vision and strategic objectives

The SSPC is a partnership between nine leading academic institutions aiming to support the continued growth of academic primary care in Scotland. It provides a cohesive, coordinated and unified approach to increasing the research evidence base for primary care transformation in Scotland while also focusing on the relationship between education and primary care workforce. 

The School brings together academic partners across the country to provide national strategic direction for a programme of primary care research and a research capacity programme. It also facilitates educational collaboration between institutions and healthcare professions across Scotland.   

The mission of the School is to increase research evidence to inform clinical practice and policy in primary care to benefit patients and the public.
