The Journal of Comorbidity is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Scottish School of Primary Care (SSPC). The SSPC is a virtual school comprising all Scottish academic departments with significant primary care research output. This currently includes the Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling, and St. Andrew’s. This is the second important partnership that the journal has formed to strengthen ties with professional primary care networks with an interest in comorbidity and multimorbidity research. It is anticipated that this new collaboration will increase the journal’s reach and help cultivate research, discussion, and knowledge about comorbidity and multimorbidity.

The Scottish School of Primary Care

Since its inception in 2000, the SSPC has established a reputation for research excellence, attracting new research funding to Scottish universities. The school aims to support the development of a sustainable, equitable, high-quality primary care service that meets the needs of the people of Scotland. Working towards this vision, the SSPC’s current strategic objectives are to:

  • Inform key stakeholders by collating relevant available national and international evidence, as well as actively contributing to the growing evidence base
  • Support the continuing growth of academic primary care in Scotland
  • Promote Scottish academic primary care internationally.
