Dr. Weller's main research interests are in cancer, 'medically unexplained symptoms', and evidence-based primary care. His work in cancer focuses on the role of primary care in screening, early diagnosis and management. The main emphasis of the work on medically unexplained symptoms has so far been on patients who are frequently referred from primary to secondary care - we are interested in developing new ways of responding to the needs of these individuals. David Weller is Head of the General Practice Section in the Division of Community Health Sciences at the University of Edinburgh and is actively engaged in activities to build capacity in primary care and cancer research in the UK.
