In 1996 and 1997 authoritative reports identified the absence of a research culture in primary care. This article reviews progress since then in the context of the wider development of evidence based medicine. The article considers critiques of the meaning of evidence and focuses on both service delivery and policy. An argument is made that “knowledge”, “not evidence”, offers a better basis for primary care practice.
