PRIMER downloads: Our Resources
The PRIMER group, in collaboration with researchers at the Centre, have developed resources to support the public to get involved in primary care research, but they may be useful in other contexts too!
We firmly believe that it's better to share than to reinvent the wheel so if you are interested in using or adapting these resources please get in touch by clicking on the links!
