GP’s need also to be able to recognise and treat serious illness in the neonate during the first weeks of life in order to reduce infant mortality and the risk of long-term morbidity from delayed diagnosis. With the wider availability of ultrasound GP’s will benefit from becoming more competent to incorporate this into their clinical practice to enhance their diagnosis and management in the obstetric patent.
