    Abstract

    A project of joint consultation between a paediatrician and several general practitioners serving a group practice of 15,000 patients has shown that outpatient clinics held at a group-practice centre (when 36 children were seen at 78 consultations over 18 months) reduced the overall work-load, eliminated dual care, and directly benefited the doctors, the children, and their families.
