Welcome to the
Wales School for Primary Care Research
The Wales School for Primary Care Research (WSPCR) is a virtual school and partnership between the Universities of Cardiff, Bangor, Glyndŵr, Swansea and Glamorgan (University of South Wales), and funded by NISCHR, Welsh Government. It is a multi-disciplinary collaboration of primary care disciplines.
We are building up a network of researcher and clinician members interested in primary care news and research collaborations.
