It's election year at Londonwide LMCs!

Elections take place every two years on a rolling basis and any GP working in the area may be nominated for election. We welcome representation from all GPs including partners, employed and freelance GPs.

Serving on your LMC is a worthwhile and rewarding role.

Dr Michelle Drage, Londonwide LMCs’ CEO strongly encourages all GPs to consider standing for election at this important time.

“LMCs have a crucial role in securing the future of general practice, and are the only bodies representing the interests of all GPs as providers of primary health services. It's important to get every London GP, partner, employed, locum, new entrant and trainee GP involved in their LMC.

Our recent survey shows that the shape of the workforce is changing and LMCs that reflect this are the best able to represent their constituents. Our ongoing work to upskill Chairs and Vice Chairs makes them better placed than ever to facilitate sharing the valuable experience of long-serving members to support newly elected ones” says Michelle.

Nomination packs will be sent out in May for GPs to complete if they would like to become a member of their LMC.  Nominations need to be received by Friday 3 June 2016 and the elections will take place from late June to mid July 2016.

Watch out for more information in the coming months.

If you have any queries please contact lmc-elections@lmc.org.uk.
