    Hi mums,
    I've come to Bahrain from the UK and am wondering what the benefit of registering my nearly 2 year old with a paed is? In the UK you only see a paediatrician under special circumstances and you see a GP for everything else. So I can't quite see the benefit of signing up with one, until a *need* presents itself? Your experiences and advice is welcome!

    Thank you!

    Hi, I don't think they have GPs here, so I've registered ours with a paediatrician...we had a initial consultation just with the registration which gave the chance to meet the person first so to check your happy and familiar with them (rather than meeting a complete stranger in a time of need)
