The Duncan Society


Named after Dr William Henry Duncan (1805-1863), Liverpoolís renowned and pioneering Medical Officer of Health during the 19th century, the Society was formed in 1998.

Its purpose is to stimulate debate, discussion and understanding on issues and policies which affect the health and quality of life of the people of Merseyside and Cheshire.

The Duncan Society makes a special contribution through its capacity to bring together community activists, experts of various kinds, professionals, managers and the general public.

At its monthly meetings the Society attracts renowned local, national and international figures who address issues relevant to the health of the regionís population. It provides a rare opportunity where a diverse group of people, drawing on their own knowledge and experience, can exchange views and learn together about the challenges and opportunities which face us all as we strive, in the spirit of Dr.Duncan, to improve the well-being of our region.

The meetings are open to all, however, we are keen for people to join the Society in addition to attending the meetings. As members, you will be kept informed of all the Societyís events. You will also have the opportunity to shape the development of the Society. Not the least, a vibrant membership also provides an important source of funding which allows the Society to grow and flourish.
