PeninnesWelcome to the West Pennine Local Medical Committee website.

Who are we

Local Medical Committees (LMCs) are the professional voice of General Practice, made up of practising GPs selected by local GPs. LMCs are bodies recognised in statute which are in place to represent the interests of all local GPs and their teams.
Providing specialist advice and guidance, your LMC's focus is helping practices to secure their future. In today's challenging and rapidly evolving health and social care environment, it's a crucial role which West Pennine LMC undertakes with passion, pride and professionalism.
On behalf of ALL GPs in the Oldham and Tameside & Glossop areas, the West Pennine LMC liaises with the BMA and other NHS and related organisations. We are able to offer support to vulnerable practices and individual GPs who find themselves in difficulty. We are able to offer confidential information and advice, as well as pastoral support.

Please do get in touch if you feel we can be of assistance:
