180th Anniversary Webinar - Petition and Plotting: the early days of the College

Thursday 7 January 2021

This webinar covered the controversy that surrounded the transition to becoming a Royal College in 1971, 50 years ago. The webinar features the first screening of short video about The Petition Group, a band of rebel Junior Doctors who objected to way the College was being formed and the bitter conflict that erupted as a result. The screening was followed by a panel discussion to examine the issues in greater detail and consider the impact that it has had on the College today.


This webinar was chaired by former president, Prof Dinesh Bhugra, alongside our panelists Sir David Goldberg, Prof John Gunn, Dr Angela Rouncefield & Dr Peter Noble.
