Abstract

To determine the effect of membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) on recognition of depression, odds ratios, Lowess-smoothed plots, and regression models were produced for recognition rates in a representative sample of 20 818 patient contacts for members and non-members of the RCGP. Membership of the RCGP did not appear to convey greater ability to discriminate between depressed and non-depressed patients, but members were more likely to recognise depression in both depressed and non-depressed individuals.
