Sample text

Between then and 1995 the priority was to expand staff numbers. This was to allow expansion of community-based teaching to meet the GMC requirements for more community exposure and behavioural sciences teaching, and to develop a strategic departmental research portfolio to compete at a national level. Three senior lecturer posts were created from limited capacity building by the university and significant funding from the NHS via the tasked funding for general practice initiative from the Department of Health.

At the same time Michael Lennard, a relatively recent Bristol graduate, was working in general practice in Hartcliffe, a new estate in the south of the city, and was keen to introduce medical students to general practice. In 1963 Sandy Macara (later president of the BMA) was appointed lecturer within the small public health department and given the responsibility for running a four-week general practice clerkship. In 1965 the southwest faculty of the College of General Practitioners sent a memorandum of evidence to the medical curriculum review committee of the university stating ‘we strongly urge the setting up of a department of general practice as a logical step in the development of undergraduate medical education’.

However the faculty remained resistant to developing an academic presence in the medical school and missed at least one opportunity of obtaining central government funding for such a development. John Howie was appointed as the RCGP Jephcott visiting professor in 1979–1980 and his report to the university outlined the way to develop an independent department of general practice. A university working party report on how this new department could be developed had its proposals rejected and again the need for such a department was questioned.
