Abstract: It is today an undisputed fact that the care of a patient will be improved by the proper use of medical records. The state of medical record keeping in general practice in Malta has been the subject of many conjectures and no evidence exists to provide an indication of the real state of affairs. The aim of this small study was to try and obtain some facts about the subject. The study was carried out in August 1990. A short postal questionnaire was sent to 87 doctors, all founder members of the Malta College of Family Doctors. The questionnaire was designed to be short and to give some background information on the population sample of doctors. In addition, apart from seeking factual information on the type and extent of record keeping, it also explored doctors' attitudes in this regard.
