The Harveian Society of London
The Society was founded in 1831 as the Western London Medical Society but, shortly after the first meeting, the name was changed to the Harveian Society of London in token of its resolution to strictly adhere to the course of observation and induction so successfully pursued by Harvey in his discovery of the circulation of the blood
The Society met in various places in north west London but, in 1951, settled in its permanent home co-located with the Medical Society of London
The Society continues to meet on the second Wednesday of each month between October and May where supper can be taken before a lecture, the themes of which are mainly medical and often attract CPD credits authorized by the Royal College of Physicians.
The membership is mainly medical but also contains a wide cross section of people from all walks of life who have an interest in the current trends in medicine and its associated fields. If you are thinking about joining, please see the Membership
