We support a student from every medical school and some schools of pharmacy. We also support a student at the Guildhall School of Music and offer prizes at the London medical schools, Christ’s Hospital School and the City of London Academy, Southwark.

Social Events

The Society runs a full social dining and meeting programme, and the Livery Committee organises monthly visits and events, all of which are restricted to members of the Society. In addition, the Faculties hold a series of Eponymous Lectures and buffet suppers that are open to the public. Click Here

Supporting the Lord Mayor and City of London

The Society’s Liverymen form part of the franchise for the election of the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs and the Society supports the activities of the Lord Mayor and Corporation.

We also have affiliated links with HMS SOMERSET, 256 (City of London) Field Hospital RAMC(V), the Middlesex and North West London ACF, 201 RAMC (Harrow) detachment ACF, and 4626 (County of Wiltshire) Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron RAuxAF.

The Society frequently lets its Hall to other City of London Livery Companies, legal organisations, the City of London police, City institutions, charities, and commercial organisations.
