Liverpool Medical Institution is one of the oldest medical societies in the world, tracing its origins to the founding of the Liverpool Medical Library in 1779. For 50 years the Liverpool Medical Library was situated variously at the Liverpool Infirmary on Shaw's Brow, and the Liverpool Dispensary in Church Street. In the 1830s a campaign masterminded by Dr John Rutter, whose portrait is above, led to the raising of sufficient funds to erect the present building, which was opened in May 1837.
The building, designed by Clark Rampling, has many unique architectural features made possible by its position on the corner of Hope Street and Mount Pleasant, including the Victorian Lecture Theatre and the curved Gallery with its glass roof domes. The building was extended in 1966 and underwent a major refurbishment in 1998 with the aid of Heritage Lottery funding.
The Institution continues to serve the purposes for which it was founded, adapting itself to meet the various challenges of the times. For nearly two centuries the beautiful Grade II* listed building has been a focus of medical life and a meeting place for the medical community of Merseyside, its primary role being that of a medical library. The LMI is a Registered Charity and now exists to foster an environment for furthering medical education and knowledge - undergraduate, postgraduate and across all specialties.
