Welcome to the website of the Norwich Medico-Chirurgical Society. 2017 was the 150th Anniversary of the Society - the second oldest in England. The society was founded at a time of great medical change and to promote the learning and understanding of these changes.

Whilst the way we as a profession keep up to date has changed beyond recognition, every year a Programme is arranged by the Society President of that year. The President is alternatively from Primary Care and Secondary Care so the subjects covered are eclectic but include advances and changes in medical care, but also provides us with insight into the arts, other sciences and non medical speakers on local Norfolk topics.

Hopefully, the broad appeal of each Programme is a way for our Society to continue the essential links between primary and secondary care. It is one of the few remaining venues when we can meet colleagues to whom we correspond or phone for advice.

We want to encourage existing members to bring along at least one new person each time to the meeting. You do not have to be a member to attend the first meeting and a warm welcome awaits – this includes both medical students and doctors in training. Often Societies may be perceived as anachronistic but we hope that the Norwich MEDCHI will remain vibrant and refreshed by our wide community of clinicians, so join our society today.
