Re: "What people say about their general practitioners' treatment of anxiety and depression", by Andrews G, Carter GL, in the 16 July Supplement on the SPHERE National Depression Project (Med J Aust 2001; 175: S48–S51, not available online). On page S49, column 1, the last sentence under the heading "Assessment" should be replaced by "'Perceived health need' was based on questions derived from the work by Meadows et al.1 These questions were asked principally of people who had not sought treatment. Similar concepts were used by the UK Survey of Psychiatric Morbidity questions."
