Kyle Stewart - T&DMS President 2020-21

President's Welcome

Welcome to the Torquay & District Medical Society.
I’m incredibly excited to build on Peter Moore’s work as President of the Society.
I hope to build stronger ties with our colleagues - in particular, the junior doctors at Torbay Hospital.
I also want to make the society more welcoming to allied health professionals, without whom we doctors could simply not survive!
In this day and age, an effective multi-disciplinary team is the cornerstone of good patient care, and I would like this to be reflected by the Society.
I’m thoroughly looking forward to taking the Society forward, so please do contact me if you have any ideas, concerns or expectations for our future.

Who We Are

The Torquay & District Medical Society was founded in 1842 to provide social and educational opportunities for members of the medical profession.

The Society has over 500 members from Hospital and General Practitioners, both current and retired. We welcome trainees and medical students.

We also offer affiliate membership for allied professions and from all branches of the medical world.

The Society aims to provide a regular social environment in which our members can meet with their peers for entertainment, educational and networking purposes.

Torbay & District Medical Society is a Registered Charity, number 246725

Our Activities

The Society organises regular dinners throughout the winter months - from October to April. Our dinners offer an ideal opportunity to meet colleagues in a relaxed and sociable environment.

Commencing with pre-dinner drinks in the bar, our dinners are rounded off with an entertaining, informative and enlightening talk from a guest speaker.

During the summer months, the Society has a less formal programme including regular participation in the Dartmouth Medical Regatta.
