Nottingham leads the world in research using information from primary healthcare


The University of Nottingham is the world-leader in research that uses the analysis of primary healthcare data to drive improvements in primary care, according to a study in the journal BMJ Open

The investigation shows the University produced the largest number of research publications using primary care databases of any institution in the world and is second in the world for citations.  

Three of the School of Medicine’s investigators are in the top 10 in this field globally; Professor Richard Hubbard for his work in the diagnosis of lung disease, Professor and GP Julia Hippisley-Cox for her ground-breaking work using the QResearch clinical research database to predict risk of serious illnesses, and Professor Joe West who uses population-based databases for the epidemiology of digestive diseases.
