The General Practice Research Club was established in 1969, and now has 120 members. A meeting of the club is held twice a year, at which various papers, from research ideas through to completed, published studies are presented. A survey of 40 individuals who had presented papers at meetings during the period 1984-89 showed that almost half (18) had presented papers on clinical topics. As a result of the presentation, 29 individuals had modified their research, with 11 undertaking major alterations. The meeting was rated most highly by those offering ideas and plans for research. Most individuals responded positively to the meetings, commenting that they valued peer review, found the meetings encouraging, and useful for focusing ideas. Lack of criticism and feedback was commented upon. The club has an important role to play in encouraging research by service general practitioners.
