All GPs working in our 4 CCG areas (East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull, North East Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire) are eligible to stand. In addition to constituency seats for GP Partners, we have a number of seats ring-fenced for salaried and locum GPs. We also retain several observer seats for Practice Managers.
The LMC plays an important role in representing GPs as providers – and it is an organisation which exists solely to support and champion GPs and their practices. In such uncertain times, it is more important than ever that GPs have a cohesive voice and that GPs are able to come together as providers to consider national, regional and local issues. Our meetings take place on the first Tuesday of each month (except August) at 7pm at Lazaat, Cottingham. We reimburse travel expenses and ensure that you get a nice meal!
Our north and south bank committees now meet together as there are many issues and developments in common. It is a large meeting frequently attended by up to 30 GPs with a wide-ranging agenda and it is the Committee that determines the position and policy of the LMC on local matters.
If you are interested in finding out more about the LMC or about standing for election, please contact Amalia Booker, Director of Operations on 01482 655111 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also welcome to attend an LMC meeting as an observer to see how the Committee functions – contact Amalia to make the relevant arrangements.
