2. Since the first evaluation report this criteria has been amended. Previously it was believed that sites were to enrol at least 60% of clients by 16 weeks gestation. Using those criteria the first evaluation report (Martin et al, 2011) stated that 32% of clients had been enrolled by that time. This report has used the amended criteria (16 weeks and 6 days) in order to calculate the proportion of clients enrolled by that time.

3. Aggregate figures derived from the data have been provided to the evaluation team by the NHS Lothian Local FNP Lead and, from March 2012, FNP Scotland's Research and Information officer.
