Abstract

We describe a 20-year retrospective study of 58 patients with a cross-matched control group in one practice, who initially attended more than 12 times in 1975. The study establishes that frequent attendance is not consistent; the majority of high-attending patients in general practice revert over ashort period of time to a normal consulting pattern. Diseases, rather thanpatients, appear to dictate high consulting rates. Consistent high attendance is largely owing to multiple pathology.
