For every single in the person symptoms investigated (together with the exception of blood in stool) the proportion of high effect non-consultations was larger than the proportion of low influence consultations.Incongruous consultation behaviour groups (individual level analysis)In the 1681 respondents who experienced no less than one symptom inside the previous two weeks and who offered full details on symptom influence and GP use, just under half (45.four ) were categorised into among the two incongruous consultation behaviour groups (Figure 1). A total of 139 folks (8.3 ) reported at the least 1 low impact symptom within the earlier two weeks which they consulted their GP about and so had been categorised as low influence consulters. Most individuals have been a low influence consulter for one particular (61.2 ) or two (21.6 ) symptoms. The maximum number of symptoms that an individual was a low impact consulter for was 10.
