Notice of Special Meeting to be held on Thursday 30th March 2017 at 6.30pm in the Med-Chi Hall

Notice is hereby given of a Special Meeting of Society Members as requested by Dr James Henderson, during the introductory business at the Society's regular meeting on Thursday 2nd March. Dr Henderson, speaking on behalf of a number of 'senior members' wishing to exercise their constitutional right to seek such a meeting, read a short prepared statement.

The intended purpose of the meeting requested is to have a wide-ranging discussion on the present state of the Society that will hopefully allow the emergence of a formulation of ideas to support its future aims and ambitions. Dr Henderson has subsequently asked that members are encouraged to appreciate the importance of this event.

The President immediately agreed to the request and arrangements for the meeting have been made as above.

Please consider attending if you wish to participate in the discussion.

History of Primary Care

Posted on 28th May 2014

"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 for ever.

There are many ways how the history may be recorded.

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

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. \n and we will then arrange a meeting at a suitable time.
