Post a reply: Recommended total population that an OTP should service

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Does anyone know of a guidance figure provided and a source of information, for the maximum number of people in a catchment area that an OTP should aim to service i.e. it's recommended to have 1 x OTP/10,000 people. SPHERE doesn't provide guidance on population numbers, rather it states, 'outpatient programme sites should be close to the targeted population to reduce the risks and costs associated with travelling long distances with young children and the risk of being displaced to them' and 'more than 90% of the target pop is within less than one day's return walk (including time for treatment) of the prog site'.
