Kidderminster Medical Society Newsletter first made its appearance in January 1992. Its first Editors were Graeme Wilcox (Content Editor) and Barrie Davies (Production Editor). Just prior to Graeme's untimely death in 2001, Hilary Boyle took over as content Editor. Since its inception, the newsletter has appeared between two and four time a year including a bumper centenary edition in October 1993.
