The "average" person in the UK has about 5 problems "tagged" to their GP notes. (Rightly or wrongly.) In fact, seeing only 1 or 2 problems usually suggests that the patient has been "out of the system" for some time.

As my learned colleagues have suggested, the activity of those problems is more likely to evoke issues, rather than the total number themselves.
