The contribution of different general practitioner characteristics, views, and experiences to the likelihood of their providing child health surveillance (CHS) was determined and their perceived training needs discovered.
Family health service authority administrative data on the study population was combined with a postal questionnaire survey.
Subjects were all general practitioners in three district health authorities in the North West Thames region.
There were striking differences between districts in the proportion of practitioners undertaking CHS.
General practitioners with paediatric training were three times more likely to do CHS.
Women doctors were twice as likely to do CHS as men.
