The Clinical Effectiveness Group (CEG) uses primary care health data for research, with a focus on reducing health inequalities and improving population health. Our academics, primary care clinicians, health data scientists, analysts and primary care facilitators turn knowledge into action which improves clinical care. Our work involves interdisciplinary teams, and includes the perspectives of patients, and health care professionals, and values team science. We are founding partners of the Discovery Data Service, which integrates data from GPs, hospitals, and community settings in near real-time.
Our research is supported by major funders, including Barts Charity programme grants: ‘REAL Health - Research Enabled Learning Health Systems’ and ‘Precision Medicine’. These use health data for research to improve equitable disease prevention and treatment. We lead the Wellcome Trust PhD in science programme ‘Health Data in Practice’ and are members of the NIHR School of Primary Care Research. We lead the Wolfson Institute Digital and Health Data Science theme. More information about our work is available here.
