    Abstract

    An analysis of the establishment and running of a general-practitioner medical unit in a district general hospital has shown that it fulfills a useful and positive role in the area health services and is well used. It shows that selectivity of admission can and does work and that the theoretical drawbacks to such a unit did not materialize in practice during the study.
