Green H et al (2008) General practitioner attitudes towards referral of eating-disordered patients: a vignette study based on the theory of planned behaviour Mental Health in Family Medicine 5(4): 213-218

Description: GP's within three PCT's were posted a vignette depicting a patient with disordered eating, described as either normal weight or underweight. Demographic details were also collected. Responses were received from 88 GP's (33%). Results found that intention to refer the patient was significantly related to subjective norms and cognitive attitudes. Despite NICE guidelines, patient weight did not influence GP referral decisions.

Kenicer, D. et al (2012) A national survey of health service infrastructure and policy impacts on access to computerised CBT in Scotland. BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making 2012, 12:102

Description: Results are presented from a telephone survey of lead IT staff at all 14 health board areas across Scotland which examined the extent to which the NHS in Scotland is providing routine access for patients to utilise computerised cognitive behavioural therapy (cCBT). Each board area was contacted between September 2010 and March 2011. Results show only 5 (36%) of the 14 health boards regions in Scotland provide routine PC access to patients.
