McConkey, Roy; Moore, Gordon; Marshall, David
Journal of Learning Disabilities (United Kingdom), v6 n4 p373-84 Dec 2002

Those who reported dealing with a referral were more favorably disposed to undertake health screening within their practice, whereas those uninvolved continued to opt for specialist provision.
