Figure 6 Percentage of patients receiving surgery or other invasive diagnostic procedure by source of referral. GP referrals were more than twice as likely to undergo surgery than patients referred from A and E (OR 4.40, CI: 1.09-17.72, P = 0.04). However, due to the small number of in-patient referrals, significance was not reached for GP vs In-Patient referrals (P = 0.15). IP: In-patient referrer; GP: General practitioner.
