dc.description.abstractAbstract published with permission. Background: This article stemmed from a search for more understanding about how paramedics relate to urgent and primary care (U&PC). Methods: The current study is qualitative, involving interview with seven general practitioners (GPs) in Wirral, Merseyside. Their verbatim evidence was audiorecorded, transcribed and analysed. Findings: There were three superordinate themes established: variability of referrals; the value of referrals sometimes being overlooked; and the need for skills development to improve referrals. Conclusion: The paramedic skillset is essential for appropriate referrals as long as their limitations are considered by GPs, while future research should focus on how paramedic skill bases can evolve in the U&PC community.
