LMC elections 2021 nominations now open – make your voice heard and stand for election

  • Latest news

Only LMCs represent every GP practice in their area and every person working within each one. Standing for your LMC means giving a voice to your colleagues and personally developing new skills, as our Board members explain in this brief video.

The deadline for nominations is 5:00pm on Friday 28 May 2021 and nominations are sought from every London GP, whether a partner, employed, locum, new entrant or trainee GP, so if ever there was a time to think about joining your LMC, it is now.

Whether you are an experienced LMC member who knows the system inside out, returning to work from maternity leave or a career break, recently qualified, or a long-serving GP with no previous experience in a medical leadership role, your expertise is welcome and we encourage you to stand. Your perspective and ideas are valuable to your LMC.

New LMC members are supported by colleagues to develop knowledge of the wider healthcare landscape and step into new responsibilities, meeting with NHS England, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Hospital Trusts, Integrated Care Systems, Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships, MPs, and others. Time spent on formal LMC activities is reimbursed via an honoraria, or to practices for back-fill, to recognise the commitment.

With all seats across the Londonwide LMCs’ area up for election this year, and some existing members standing down, this is an opportunity to add new talent to the experienced representatives on our LMCs.
