Who’s who in General Practice? Research can help practices introduce new roles. This NIHR Evidence Collection brings together research for general practices and Primary Care Networks to help them maximise benefit from new roles and the growing diversity in their staff, and could be used by practices to help patients and the public understand the changes they are experiencing in primary care.
