I see there was a presentation on medical blogging at the Medical Humanities Conference, on 4 and 5 September at King's College London, building blogs in medicine by Giskin Day & Alexander Hamilton authors of this medical humanties blog, which appears to be Imperial-based. I can't see that the presentation is available online though.

New medical humanities site
I discovered this through the technorati search: it seems to be predominantly by Imperial medical students interested in medicine and the humanities, but has wider relevance. It has a number of interesting features, including a side bar giving details of forthcoming medical programmes on the television...mostly soaps I'm afraid, though that may be an accurate reflection of television's coverage of medical issues.
