The North London Medical and Chirurgical Society was set up in 1891 by the Medical Committee of the Great Northern Hospital, later the Royal Northern Hospital. It was designed to act as a professional and social link between doctors of the neighbourhood, who met on a monthly basis in order to discuss clinical and other medical matters. In 1942 the society was suspended on account of the Second World War. A mixture of lack of interest and the fact that many members of the society had lost their lives during the conflict meant that meetings were not resumed after the War.
