How general practice team composition and climate relate to quality, effectiveness and human resource costs: a mixed-methods study in England.

Project website



This project examines routinely available data sets using quantitative research techniques alongside qualitative methods for in-depth investigation of team working in practices. The research is being undertaken in collaboration with the Universities of Kent, Exeter and Leeds.

Two panels are advising the research team. Service users from a variety of practices in Kent and Surrey sit on the Service User Panel. Representatives from many of the disciplines working in general practice teams come together on the Professionals and Commissioners Panel.
