Method of invitation and geographical proximity as predictors of NHS Health Check uptake.

Gidlow C, Ellis N, Randall J, Cowap L, Smith G, Iqbal Z, Kumar J - J Public Health (Oxf) (2014)

Bottom Line: Attendance/non-attendance was the binary outcome variable.Telephone/verbal invitations were associated with higher uptake than postal invitations (OR = 2.87, 95% CI = 2.26-3.64), yet significant practice-level variation remained.Distance to Health Check was not associated with attendance.

FDU092F1: Within-practice variation in uptake and the proportion of Health Check invitations that were verbal/telephone (rather than letter only).

Mentions: Most individuals were invited for a Health Check through letters (72%), but this varied between practices (Fig. 1). Using telephone/verbal invitations, either alone or in combination with the letter, was linked with significantly higher attendance (χ2 = 316.24(1), P < 0.001).Fig. 1
