GP David Lee, employed by Harmoni's out-of-hours service, told the inquest that staff at the centre were not under abnormal pressure when Axel was brought in.
When questioned over Harmoni's policies, he conceded the centre would send out urgent text messages to doctors requesting they step in to fill gaps in the rota..
The inquest was told how medics reportedly received messages such as "we are desperate for help" or "very urgent, we need to fill the rota"
Dr Lee said: "It may look like the language is inappropriate but they are very much part of the conversation which occurs between the rota teams and doctors with a view to bringing doctors on to shifts."
He said practitioners would sometimes be offered work at "higher pay grades" as an incentive to step in.
Meanwhile, he told the hearing he believed Dr Takhar was recruited from an agency but would have gone through a thorough interview process.
The inquest has heard how Mrs Peanberg King first took Axel to see her own GP on the morning of October 31, when it was suggested he had a probable viral infection.
The next evening, after his condition had not improved, the family contacted the Harmoni centre and saw Dr Kuljeet Takhar.
He said that Axel's vital signs were good and his lungs were clear, suggesting the infection was probably viral, the inquest was told. But he gave them a prescription for antibiotics so they would not have to return if his condition changed.
The next day, a Friday, the child was still unwell but Mrs Peanberg King felt reassured because she had seen a doctor.
On the Saturday a "gut feeling" told her he should be seen again and they returned to Harmoni. Axel was seen by an off-duty paediatric nurse who raised the alarm and the child was taken from Mrs Peanberg King. She was later told he had gone into cardiac arrest.
