We found 12 items that covered the 10 most strongly associated items from both analyses: four of six items from the {"}doctor-patient relationship{"}, two of five items from {"}medical care{"}, and all items from {"}information and support{"} and {"}organization of services{"}. No items from {"}accessibility{"} were among the 12 items. Conclusions.

No items from "accessibility" were among the 12 items. Conclusions. Recommending the GP to others was most strongly associated with the "emphatic", "patient-oriented", "informative and coordinating", and "competent/skilled" GP and to a lesser degree with accessibility to general practice.
