Out-of-hours calls made to children by an urban practice were studied over a 12-month period. Out of a total of 1463 out-of-hours visits, 336 were to children, of whom 17 were admitted to hospital. The proportion of the out-of-hours calls which were to children is less than had been expected. This unexpectedly low level of out-of-hours visits to children and the type of conditions encountered should be taken into account when planning vocational training programmes.
