HC Deb 25 June 1986 vol 100 c210W
Mr. Soley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what training general practitioners are given in diagnosing early childhood dysfunction.

Mr. Whitney

All medical students receive paediatric training within guidelines laid down by the General Medical Council. Paediatric experience is listed as a priority in the vocational training for doctors wishing to become general practitioners. In addition, a variety of postgraduate training courses is available to general practitioners on the clinical content of child development.
