New towns with large populations of children present ideal opportunities to study and implement extended primary care services for children. It appears that workload in most new towns is higher than in established communities. Often, the demanding nature of new town practice seems to have precluded innovations in primary care services for children. This report, which is general-practice orientated, can only indicate some aspects of child care in new towns which require further scrutiny. General practitioners are strongly divided in their views as to how they can act most effectively in child health, but there is no doubt that there is a chance in our new towns to nurture the idea of expanding the general practitioner's role in child care.
