1.  Recognising failure to thrive in early childhood. 
Archives of Disease in Childhood  1990;65(11):1263-1265.
The maximum weight centile achieved by a child between 4 and 8 weeks of age was found to be a better predictor of the centile at 12 months than the birth weight centile. Children whose weight deviated two or more major centiles below this maximum weight centile for a month or more showed significant anthropometric differences during the second year of life from those who showed no such deviation. It is suggested that this leads to a logical and practical definition of failure to thrive.

2.  Auditing community screening for undescended testes. 
Archives of Disease in Childhood  1990;65(8):888-890.
Different ways of auditing screening for undescended testes, using Hospital Activity Analysis data, hospital case notes, and community/general practice records are described. The cumulative orchidopexy rate per 1000 male births in successive birth cohorts is a simple tool for monitoring trends within a health district. Information gained from community/general practice records is valuable in highlighting problem areas in screening, such as the lack of clear diagnostic criteria and referral pathways.
