|Interpretation of the interaction between the association of deprivation and booking with a preferred doctor with emergency admissions, from the Access Survey and Demographic model|
|For each 1% absolute increase in %Able to book with a preferred GP||For the ‘typical’ (median) practice with 580 EAs per year – the corresponding decrease in EAs||Median value of ‘% Able to book with a preferred GP’ for each IMD Quintile|
|Deprivation quintile 1 (typically 6 IMD points) - Least deprived||decrease of 1.2% in EAs||decrease of 6.8 EAs||87%|
|Deprivation quintile 2 (typically 13 IMD points)||decrease of 0.9% in EAs||decrease of 5.2 EAs||87%|
|Deprivation quintile 3 (typically 20 IMD points)||decrease of 0.6% in EAs||decrease of 3.6 EAs||86%|
|Deprivation quintile 4 (typically 25 IMD points)||decrease of 0.4% in EAs||decrease of 2.4 EAs||89%|
|Deprivation quintile 5 (typically 40 IMD points) - Most deprived||increase of 0.2% in EAs||increase of 1.1 EAs||87%|
EA = Emergency Admission.
