In 1966 the Midland faculty of the then College of General Practitioners began to explore the possibility of establishing a formal post in the medical school and Michael Drury, who had recently returned from a Nuffield Fellowship, was offered a part-time post as a lecturer in the department of social medicine by Professor Thomas McKeown. This enabled these elective attachments to be promoted more formally and with clear objectives and assessments. These became sufficiently well taken up for the Dean, a neurosurgeon Professor Brodie Hughes, to agree that if outside money could be found for four years a part-time post with secretarial help would be established.

The general practice community felt unable to influence the attitudes of senior academics, and the priority to establish the research faculty of the clinical school prevailed. The university’s undergraduate clinical teaching and research were centred largely in Addenbrooke’s Hospital. General practice teaching practices were appointed but the general practice community felt the lack of a dedicated department. A small compensation was the transfer of the postgraduate Dean’s office to the clinical school building in 1980, bringing the new regional adviser (Bob Berrington) alongside the director of studies – though the two systems remained administratively and financially independent.
