GPAS enables practices to report their level of resilience (status) using a simple traffic light system, which is akin to the OPEL assessment used by secondary care. It is essential that practices complete GPAS as your LMC is working with the ICB to create a support document for practices reporting Amber, Red or black in GPAS.

 

 

Who we are

We are the local representative committee of NHS General Practitioners. The Local Medical Committee (LMC) is the only elected, representative organisation that represents and provides support and information to General Practitioners (GPs). We represent over 730 GPs working in over 100 practices across Norfolk & Waveney. We exist to represent, advise and support GPs and general practice. We have certain statutory duties and must be consulted on certain issues.

LMCs interact and work with, and through, the BMA General Practitioners Committee (GPC) as well as other branches of practice committees and local specialist medical committees in various ways, including conferences.

 

Your LMC supports the Rebuild General Practice Campaign

KEEP PATIENTS SAFE. PROTECT THE NHS. REBUILD GENERAL PRACTICE

This campaign is funded by the GPDF on behalf of the general practice community.

“General practice should be at the heart of every community – keeping patients safe, and providing strong foundations for the rest of the NHS. But decades of neglect has broken the entire system. We don’t have enough family doctors to treat our patients. GPs are leaving the profession in droves, and practices are closing all over the UK. Patients should be able to see us when they need to.

Our colleagues across the NHS should be able to work closely with us to provide the right care, at the right time. A strong general practice keeps people healthy and gives them the care they need in their community. And it takes the pressure off hospitals and specialist services, saving money in the longer term.

Reform takes time, but these problems are immediate and real.

That’s why we need to come together and Rebuild General Practice. It is the only way we can keep our patients safe, and protect the NHS.

We are a group of GPs calling for a proper, long-term plan to Rebuild General Practice.

We are asking the Government, patients and our colleagues across the NHS to join us in building a long-term patient centred vision for general practice.

We are calling for:

  • A plan to retain the GP workforce;
  • Fair funding as part of the wider NHS;
  • Greater freedom and autonomy to do our jobs.”
