IMO it should convey:

  attributed to your GP, hopefully

Doctor with child?
Doctor could even be female?
... if people would be too much detail for a logo, something that conveys calm or reassurance or tranquility

- relatively clear imagery

- no "standard" Red Cross because of copyright issues

- one in-your-face item of the logo shall clearly say "this
  is about healthcare given by doctors to patients in the
  community" (as opposed to at the hospital)
- no hospital-related imagery

... I am wondering what hospitals have done to create such a bad name, but have no objection :-) ... visuals in support of community might include an obviously small building, or no building, or an open village

We have a landing page graphic for a site that is meant to promote local doctors' online discussion and collegiality reminiscent of historical doctors' lounges... too much detail for an icon but I offer it only for the concept

- I don't really dislike our current logo :-)

- but I am open to other good logos

- also, Debian-Med might want another logo or two

I suppose we should at minimum make clear that the logo should be made
available under a suitable license. What would we suggest?

Personally I'd be quite OK with any of the OSI
approved/Creative Commons Licenses, I suppose.
