Hi

I have just joined. Might be a bit late but here goes.

We are using PHQ-9 questionnaire which can be downloaded from www.depression-primarycare.org (http://www.depression-primarycare.org). It was listed in the 'Revisions to the GMS Contract 2006/7.

Hope this helps.

yes we also are an EMIS LV practice and use the 6CIT dementia test and find it more appropriate than the PHQ-9 questionnaire. The following link is useful as it contains both the 6CIT with scoring and also useful guidance on the subject http://www.patient.co.uk/showdoc/40002381

we are using the PHQ-9 for the DEP2 indicator as a depression screening tool
