LMC / Healthwatch Open letter to patients on supporting General Practice
Your LMC has been working with Healthwatch to produce a joint Open letter to patients focusing on how they can support general practice. Please find this here and share with your patients as you feel appropriate.
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 830 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.
Our Members area for GPs and Management staff contains a wealth of information and guidance; including Newsflashes, Flyers and Event information and an up-to-date Locum List of GPs, Practice Managers and other Healthcare professionals. From this area you can add a practice vacancy and advise us of practice changes including changes in your GP or practice management staffing.
Provided you are a GP, Managing Partner, Practice or Business Manager working in a Norfolk & Waveney constituent practice you can sign up to access this area now.
