This study retrospectively analysed how 20 patients with posterior canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) were managed from primary care, to treatment in tertiary care. The average time from first referral to treatment was 93 weeks, with an average of 58 weeks within primary care and 40 weeks within hospital care. At least 85% of cases had classical symptoms of BPPV and could have been easily identified by Primary Care Physicians at first referral, had they been trained to recognise and diagnose the condition. It was concluded that patients could be treated more efficiently and at less cost if the condition was identified at first referral in primary care, and treated in either primary care or dedicated BPPV clinics receiving referrals from primary care. A dedicated clinic for BPPV is recommended, which will substantially reduce waiting time for treatment and save primary care and hospitals time and money by avoiding unnecessary appointments and medication.
