About us

The Goodfellow Unit delivers continuing professional development for primary healthcare professionals, including the annual Goodfellow Symposium, and extensive high quality online content. The Goodfellow Foundation's support for the Goodfellow Unit stems from a relationship formed between the Goodfellow family and the University in 1978.  The Goodfellow Unit was initially funded by Mr Douglas Goodfellow to support general practice and to commemorate the life of his father, Sir William Goodfellow.
