  • Total number of respondents=71 793. Ethnicity was unknown for 7.4% respondents, long-standing conditions status for 7.3% and time since first treatment for 4.3%. Significant associations at α=0.05 level highlighted in italics.

  • *6.7% of patients (n=4780) had >1 long-standing condition, therefore the column total exceeds 100%.

  • †Reference category for specific long-standing conditions is not having that condition.

  • ‡Such as (but not limited to) HIV, diabetes, chronic heart disease or epilepsy.

  • CNS, central nervous system; GI, gastrointestinal.
