Uptake of the SEND system in clinical practice. a shows the number of observations recorded using the SEND system between March and December 2014. The total number of observations (solid) exceeds the minimum expected number of observations (dashed). b shows the number of active SEND users (i.e. those who have taken an observation set within the previous 14 days).
