DMU and Willows Health launch new research centre to improve patients' lives in Leicester
A pioneering partnership that will transform the care provided to patients in Leicester and Leicestershire has been launched by De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) and Willows Health. The new DMU-Willows Centre for Primary Care Research has been created to provide a platform for collaboration between expert primary care clinicians, expert academics in health and social care and a team of experts in research design.
By working with Willows Health, Leicestershire's largest GP practice leading on innovation and quality healthcare, DMU academics will conduct original research and offer services that puts the patient at the centre of the discussion.
While a lot of health research focuses on hospital patients or those referred for treatment, this partnership will focus on primary care patients who are seen by GPs or in community pharmacies.
