Welcome to Stockport Local Medical Committee Online
Stockport LMC are the local representative committees of NHS GPs, and represent the interests of all NHS GPs in Stockport to the NHS health authorities.
What is the Local Medical Committee?
The Local Medical Committee is the body statutorily recognised by successive NHS Acts as the professional organisation representing individual GPs and GP Practices as a whole to the Health Authority, including Primary Care Trusts. The 1999 NHS Act extended the LMC role to include representation of all GPs whatever their contractual status. This includes GPs in Primary Care Act Pilots, GP non-principals and GP registrars. The LMC represents the views of GPs to any other appropriate organisation or agency.
The LMC is an independent self-financing body with statutory functions. It is not a trade union. This is the role of the BMA. The LMC does function as a trade association.
Elections take place regularly under terms stipulated in the LMC constitution which is approved by the PCTs to which the committee relates. Any GP may be nominated for election.
