Abstract

General Practitioners working in deprived areas, where all-cause mortality rates are higher, face unique challenges. Despite 50 years passing since Tudor-Hart's seminal 'Inverse Care Law' paper, the health inequities gap is wide. 'Deep End GP' projects, are frontline General Practice led initiatives, working to close this gap, improving the health and lives of those most in need. To use scoping methodology to map out the process of creating a 'Deep End' GP group. A scoping review using Arksey and O'Malley's framework. MEDLINE, EMBASE, Web of Science and CINAHL databases, as well non-peer reviewed publications, were searched and articles extracted, reviewed and analysed according to iterative inclusion criteria. From an initial search number of 35 papers, sixteen papers were included in the final analysis. Key steps in starting a Deep End group are: quantifying patients and practices in areas of deprivation; establishing GP led objectives at an initial meeting; regular steering group meetings with close collaboration between academic and frontline General Practice, as well as the wider multi-disciplinary team; adopting a local Deep End Logo. Deep End GP groups have made advances to reduce health impacts of systemic health inequities. Starting a Deep End group involves a multidisciplinary approach, beginning with the identification of patients and Practices in areas of highest need. The findings and key themes identified in this scoping review will guide interested parties start the journey to do the same in their locality and to join the Deep End movement.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 39. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 21 August 2022.
All research outputs
#873,197
of 22,512,567 outputs
Outputs from BJGP Open
#39
of 499 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#19,363
of 345,220 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BJGP Open
#2
of 22 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,512,567 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 96th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 499 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 15.1. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 345,220 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 22 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its contemporaries.
