The delivery of health care has been improved in an inner-city well-baby clinic by staffing the clinic with members of a primary health care team and by offering a therapeutic service together with a preventive service. Over a three-year period attendance at the clinic has doubled and the uptake of immunization has increased. Of children registered with the practice supplying the health care team, 95% are up to date with diphtheria, tetanus and polio immunizations and 93% have been immunized against measles. It is suggested that general practitioners should have greater involvement in the running of well-baby clinics.
