The Report of the Inquiry into London’s Health Service, Medical Education and Research under the chairmanship of Sir Bernard Tomlinson dated October 1992 (hereinafter referred to as “the Tomlinson Report”) recommended the linking of London Medical Schools to multi-faculty colleges and in particular that the Schools should merge with King’s College School of Medicine and Dentistry within the College and that this merger should be pursued and implemented with all speed.
