dc.description.abstractTraditionally, in Malta, the handicapped child has been treated medically by the hospital doctor in the hospital and by the general practitioner. In the absence of highly developed community medical services, follow -up of handicapped children is usually either hospital-based or non-existent. Too often the pattern for the handicapped child is of non - attendance at the Children's Outpatient Department for follow-up appointments. The lack of any Social Workers or Health Visitors in Karen Grech Hospital means that there is no - one to follow - up any child who does not attend for a hospital appointment. We need to find out why they did not attend and whether perhaps the reason is that the family are not coping with some psychological or social problem.en_GB
