  1. Frequent attendance to OH primary care was defined as the top decile of attenders (frequent attender 10%, FA10)
  2. 1yFA = Patients that were in the top decile of attenders in one of the study years (2014, 2015 or 2016)
  3. 2yFA = Patients that were in the top decile in any two study years (2014, 2015 or 2016)
  4. pFA = Patients that were in the top decile in all three study years (2014, 2015 and 2016)
  5. non-FA = Patients that were never in the top decile were considered as a reference group, non-frequent attenders
  6. OR = odds ratio
  7. CI = confidence interval
