  Can we use routinely collected primary care medical records to assess and explain variations in amputation rates across the UK?
  Prof L Gray, Prof R Sayers
Applications accepted all year round
Using routinely collected data to look at rates of amputation requires amputation to be recorded to a high standard in medical records.
  Understanding antibiotic prescribing in out-of-hours primary care
  Dr R Barnes
Applications accepted all year round
The overuse and misuse of antibiotics in primary care is an increasing national and global concern due to the increasing risk of antimicrobial resistance (when bacteria becomes resistant to treatments leading to increased risks of illness lasting longer, increased symptom severity and even death).
  Can a virus alert system for use in primary care be developed using routinely available respiratory virus data?
  Prof A Hay
Applications accepted all year round
Improving antibiotic stewardship is an international priority. Over 75% of all health service antibiotics are prescribed by GPs and nurses in primary care.
  Harnessing the full potential of primary care data to better predict patient outcomes: a case study in Type 2 Diabetes
  Prof L Gray, Prof K Khunti, Dr M Crowther
Application Deadline: 3 April 2019
Prognostic models can be used in health care to predict the probability of an event happening to an individual. For example, knowing that a patient is at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes might change the way they are treated in order to try and prevent or delay this happening.

The use of digital technologies is increasingly offered up as a potential solution for health and social care services which are struggling to respond to demand.
  Characteristics and predictors of overtreatment in the UK - analysis of electronic primary care records

BACKGROUND. Overtreatment not only exposes patients to unnecessary risks of side-effects and complications, but also wastes limited healthcare resources.
  Identifying and quantifying the relative importance that patients attach to the outcomes of safe prescribing in primary care
  Prof R Elliott, Prof K Payne
Applications accepted all year round
There are over 1.8 million serious prescribing errors in English general practices each year and hazardous prescribing is associated with substantial healthcare costs, reduced quality of life and increased risk of mortality.
