Glasgow Baseline Survey Results

Results of baseline survey for December 2010, January 2011 and February 2011.

The percentage of patients identified for support hardly varied in 3 reporting periods (19%, 18%, 18%), nor did the recommended to a service (72%, 78%, 76%). Number of patients who expressed an intention to accept the recommendation varied (56%, 60% and 37%) which may be due to one practice with a particularly low acceptance rate.
