Quality assurance in preschool surveillance.
A quality assurance programme was used to evaluate community and primary care based preschool surveillance using the National Child Health Computer System in 40 examination centres.
Quarterly reports were generated from returns from clinical medical officers and general practitioners to list non-attenders, uptake, and timeliness for the four preschool checks.
These provided rapid and comparative feedback on personal performance for participating health professionals and led to marked rises in recorded timeliness and uptake against preset targets.
Pre-existing uptake was highest at the 6 week check with least overall improvement.
