What is an LMC?
Local Medical Committees (LMCs) represent the interests of general practitioners (GPs) at a local level. They are committees of elected representatives from local GP practices and work with the National Health Service (NHS) and other organisations to promote and protect the interests of GPs and their patients.
LMCs were established under the National Health Service Act of 1946, and they have been an important part of the NHS ever since. LMCs have a number of responsibilities, including:
Representing the views of local GPs to the NHS and other bodies.
Providing advice and support to individual GPs and GP practices.
Negotiating with the NHS and other organisations on behalf of GPs.
Supporting GPs in the provision of high-quality healthcare services to their patients.
LMCs also play a key role in supporting the development and implementation of local healthcare policies, and they work closely with other healthcare professionals and organisations to ensure that patients receive the best possible care.
