ABSTRACT
The article contemplates on primary care research in Great Britain. The author considers the report which shows that hypertensive patients who are attending general practitioners are older compared to those recruited to clinical trials, an indication why stroke reduction guidelines were not carried out in clinical practice. Other authors determine that the delivery of evidenced-based medicine should consider clinical content and processes of changing care and the systems of care.
