This house believes that

The NHS should be attempting the impossible

Proposer Dr Philip Steer, Emeritus Professor, Imperial College, London. Editor Emeritus, BJOG – an international journal of obstetrics and gynaecology

Opposer Dr Mala Rao, Professor and Senior Clinical Fellow, Dept of Primary care and Public Health, Imperial College, London



Since it was established in 1839, the HLSI has been an essential part of the life of Highgate.

We are in the heart of the village, overlooking Pond Square, in the building into which we moved in 1840.

We want to share with everyone our interest in life, the arts, literature and science.
Come and join us!
