"Times they are a Changing" said Bob Dylan, and if you remember that song you must be of a certain age.

Medicine and your Medical Practice have changed a lot in our lifetime and memories of these changes will quickly fade. As well as your own memories you will have heard stories from older senior partners and patients about your Practice in the past.

The Med Chi would like to try and record these memories for the future before they are lost forever.

There are many ways the history may be recorded:

  • Written recollections
  • Recorded interviews,
  • Photographs and copies of Practice documents
  • Books and articles written by your predecessors and colleagues.

You can read the developing archive on the Med-Chi History of GP website. Only Med-Chi members and bona fide researchers will be granted access. They need to contact the Med-Chi Secretary to obtain a password.

Stuart Duncan and Peter Duffus would like to invite you to a meeting at a suitable time to discuss how we might take the project forward.

If you have an interest in recording the History of your Practice please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will then arrange a meeting at a suitable time.

Today is tomorrow's yesterday
