Overall satisfaction rated on scale of 0 to 100 (0 = not at all satisfied, 100 = totally satisfied); all other items rated on a scale of 0 to 3 (0 = disagree, 1 = slightly agree, 2 = almost completely agree, 3 = completely agree); Items 1–10 are given in full in Additional file 1: Appendix S1. Items 2, 4–6, 9, 12 and 13 were negatively formulated in the participants’ version and items 2–4 and 6–9 in the interviewer’s version. Negative formulated items were reversed so that a higher number means less agreement with the negative statement and higher satisfaction
