General Practitioners Defence Fund (GPDF) History project

///General Practitioners Defence Fund (GPDF) History project

General Practitioners Defence Fund (GPDF) History project

Dr John Canning is Treasurer and Director of the General Practitioners Defence Fund (GPDF) which is an institution set up in 1911 following Lloyd George’s National Insurance Act. It is a limited company and exists to promote general practice. It operates within the framework of the British Medical Association but is not part of it.

The GPDF is looking for a historian who would write its history. It’s not looking for a date by date history but a critical history – by all accounts it has had some colourful clashes with the institutional medical bodies. Most of the Fund’s archives are in BMA House in London.

If you are interested in such a project, please contact Dr Canning directly to discuss the project and the financial aspects.

His details are: [email protected]
