The use of the 'Road to Health' card was assessed in the Paediatric Outpatient Department of Tygerberg Hospital over three annual week-long surveys. Of 621 children seen, 344 (55%) were accompanied by a card which in 231 cases (67%) was still in its original polythene bag. Mass was recorded on a mean of 6 occasions, perinatal data were noted on 80% of cards, but the passing of milestones was noted on only 25% of cards. Episodes of illness were recorded on only 40% of cards.
