  1. Note. Mental health symptoms only refers to whether a GP has coded a mental health problem but does not refer to a diagnosis of the patient. Mental health diagnosis refer to when a GP has coded a mental health diagnosis (with or without additional symptom code). Gender interaction is the additional effect when both the patient and GP are male.
