Who We Are?
What are Local Medical Committees (LMC’s)?
LMC’s are the bodies recognised by successive NHS Acts as the professional organisation representing individual GP’s and GP Practices as a whole. They have existed since the passing of the Local Insurance Act in 1911 when they worked in partnership with the Local Insurance Committees to ensure that the services of “Panel GP’s” were available to lower paid workers. Over the years LMC’s have provided impressive continuity and expanded their role in the face of many changes in NHS structure.
The 1999 NHS Act extended the LMC role to include representation of all GP’s whatever their contractual status. This includes GMS GP’s, PMS GP’s, Sessional GP’s and GP registrars.
