    Attendance at child health clinics in two areas of London, north Westminster and south Camden, is described. Routine examinations were attended by 97% of children although such visits accounted for only one-third of attendances. There were more non-routine visits than have been reported in most other studies--about 14 visits in Westminster and 12 in Camden during the first year. Over half the mothers sought advice on a wide variety of medical, developmental, and behavioural problems.
