#1
Peter Murchie, Rosalind Adam, Wei L Khor, Edwin A Raja, Lisa Iversen, David H Brewster, Amanda J Lee
BACKGROUND: Those living in rural areas have poorer cancer outcomes, but current evidence on how rurality impacts melanoma care and survival is contradictory. AIM: To investigate the impact of rurality on setting of melanoma excision and mortality in a whole-nation cohort. DESIGN AND SETTING: Analysis of linked routine healthcare data comprising every individual in Scotland diagnosed with melanoma, January 2005-December 2013, in primary and secondary care...

BACKGROUND: Since 2009, all eligible persons in England have been entitled to an NHS Health Check. Uncertainty remains about who attends, and the health-related impacts. AIM: To review quantitative evidence on coverage (the proportion of eligible individuals who attend), uptake (proportion of invitees who attend), and impact of NHS Health Checks. DESIGN AND SETTING: A systematic review and quantitative data synthesis. Included were studies or data reporting coverage or uptake and studies reporting any health-related impact that used an appropriate comparison group or before- and-after study design...

#3
Thomas E Cowling, Azeem Majeed, Matthew J Harris
BACKGROUND: The UK government aims to improve the accessibility of general practices in England, particularly by extending opening hours in the evenings and at weekends. It is unclear how important these factors are to patients' overall experiences of general practice. AIM: To examine associations between overall experience of general practice and patient experience of making appointments and satisfaction with opening hours. DESIGN AND SETTING: Analysis of repeated cross-sectional data from the General Practice Patient Surveys conducted from 2011-2012 until 2013-2014...

Evi Germeni, Julia Frost, Ruth Garside, Morwenna Rogers, Jose M Valderas, Nicky Britten
BACKGROUND: Reducing unnecessary prescribing remains a key priority for tackling the global rise of antibiotic-resistant infections. AIM: The authors sought to update a 2011 qualitative synthesis of GPs' experiences of antibiotic prescribing for acute respiratory tract infections (ARTIs), including their views of interventions aimed at more prudent prescribing. They expanded the original scope to encompass all primary care professionals (PCPs) who can prescribe or dispense antibiotics for ARTIs (for example, nurses and pharmacists)...

#5
Rachel Ann Spencer, Simon Edward Frank Spencer, Sarah Rodgers, Stephen M Campbell, Anthony John Avery
BACKGROUND: There is a need for greater understanding of the epidemiology of primary care patient safety in order to generate solutions to prevent future harm. AIM: To estimate the rate of failures in processing actions requested in hospital discharge summaries, and to determine factors associated with these failures. DESIGN AND SETTING: The authors undertook a retrospective records review. The study population was emergency admissions for patients aged ≥75 years, drawn from 10 practices in three areas of England...

Heather Dawn Brant, Helen Atherton, Annemieke Bikker, Tania Porqueddu, Chris Salisbury, Brian McKinstry, John Campbell, Andy Gibson, Sue Ziebland
BACKGROUND: The receptionist is pivotal to the smooth running of general practice in the UK, communicating with patients and booking appointments. AIM: The authors aimed to explore the role of the receptionist in the implementation of new approaches to consultations in primary care. DESIGN AND SETTING: The authors conducted a team-based focused ethnography. Three researchers observed eight general practices across England and Scotland between June 2015 and May 2016...

#7
Rosie Dew, Scott Wilkes
BACKGROUND: There is little evidence documenting the attitudes, experiences, and behavioural factors of high-risk patients who are associated with avoiding hospital. AIM: To explore the health, healthcare management, and behavioural factors that contribute to enabling high-risk patients to avoid unplanned hospital admissions. DESIGN AND SETTING: This was an in-depth qualitative, primary care, interview study with patients who were registered on the Northumberland High Risk Patient Programme (NHRPP) in Northumberland, UK...

Kathryn Skivington, Mathew Smith, Nai Rui Chng, Mhairi Mackenzie, Sally Wyke, Stewart W Mercer
BACKGROUND: Social prescribing is a collaborative approach to improve inter-sectoral working between primary health care and community organisations. The Links Worker Programme (LWP) is a social prescribing initiative in areas of high deprivation in Glasgow, Scotland, that is designed to mitigate the negative impacts of the social determinants of health. AIM: To investigate issues relevant to implementing a social prescribing programme to improve inter-sectoral working to achieve public health goals...

Angela Ju, Camilla S Hanson, Emily Banks, Rosemary Korda, Jonathan C Craig, Tim Usherwood, Peter MacDonald, Allison Tong
BACKGROUND: Statins are effective in preventing cardiovascular disease (CVD) events and are recommended for at-risk individuals but estimated adherence rates are low. AIM: To describe patients' perspectives, experiences, and attitudes towards taking statins. DESIGN AND SETTING: Systematic review of qualitative studies reporting perspectives of patients on statins. METHOD: PsycINFO, CINAHL, Embase, MEDLINE, and PhD dissertations from inception to 6 October 2016 were searched for qualitative studies on adult patients' perspectives on statins...

#10
Cindy Mann, Alison Shaw, Lesley Wye, Chris Salisbury, Bruce Guthrie
BACKGROUND: Computer templates for review of single long-term conditions are commonly used to record care processes, but they may inhibit communication and prevent patients from discussing their wider concerns. AIM: To evaluate the effect on patient-centredness of a novel computer template used in multimorbidity reviews. DESIGN AND SETTING: A qualitative process evaluation of a randomised controlled trial in 33 GP practices in England and Scotland examining the implementation of a patient-centred complex intervention intended to improve management of multimorbidity...

#11
Julie Evans, Sue Ziebland, John I MacArtney, Clare R Bankhead, Peter W Rose, Brian D Nicholson
BACKGROUND: Safety netting is a diagnostic strategy used in UK primary care to ensure patients are monitored until their symptoms or signs are explained. Despite being recommended in cancer diagnosis guidelines, little evidence exists about which components are effective and feasible in modern-day primary care. AIM: To understand the reality of safety netting for cancer in contemporary primary care. DESIGN AND SETTING: A qualitative study of GPs in Oxfordshire primary care...

Martin Marshall, Richard Holti, Jean Hartley, Tatum Matharu, John Storey
BACKGROUND: Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) were established in England in 2013 to encourage GPs to exert greater influence over the processes of service improvement and redesign in the NHS. Little is known about the extent and the ways in which GPs have assumed these leadership roles. AIM: To explore the nature of clinical leadership of GPs in CCGs, and to examine the enablers and barriers to implementing a policy of clinical leadership in the NHS. DESIGN AND SETTING: A qualitative multi-case study approach in six localities across England...
