Asian mothers' use of general-practitioner and maternal/child welfare services

Abstract

A matched control study was carried out to determine whether Asian immigrants in Nottingham made more or less use of the general-practitioner services than British-born white subjects.

The study was limited to antenatal, postnatal, and infant care in one general practice, and information was collected from general-practitioner and health-visitor records and by an interview with the mother. The findings showed no difference between the two groups in the use of the general-practitioner or maternal and child welfare services.
