Thirty-four % (n = 12) of service customers reported that they would like to modify the way they followed their treatment recommendations, with 20 (n = 7) wanting to follow them much more closely and 14 (n = 5) much less closely. Sixty-six percent (n = 23) did not wish to modify the way they followed recommendations. Of these who did not desire to transform the way they followed their recommendations, only 57 (n = 13) reported that they followed recommendations exactly. This implies that practically a third of service customers (29 , n = ten) didn’t take medication as advised and had been satisfied with their level of adherence (Table 3). Service users have been asked to price their satisfaction with their existing medication on a scale of 1 (not at all happy) to 5 (really satisfied) (Figure 1). They have been also asked to price their satisfaction with their existing supportGibson et al.
