Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Female patients were significantly more likely to present (8 per 1000 encounters) at upper abdominal encounters than were males (6 per 1000). Female patients were over represented (64.5%) compared with total BEACH (56.8%), as were patients of non-English speaking background and patients aged 25-64 years. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients were seen marginally more often than average at these encounters. Very young and elderly patients were under represented.
