    Abstract

    A pilot scheme was set up in Hampshire in January 1970, in which a local health authority doctor was “attached” to a group of general practitioners to carry out developmental assessment on infants and young children. Older pre-school children are also seen when necessary, and in all cases possible future educational requirements are considered. Such a scheme reduces duplication of work, increases mutual understanding between general practitioners and local health authority doctors, and helps to make full use of the limited resources of medical manpower.
