Supporting GPs and General Practices
Your LMC has many years experience of working within the system to support general practice and this breadth and depth of expertise, relationships and resources serves as is a unique source of independent, reliable and trusted advice and support. Our job is to look after you, so you can concentrate on looking after your patients.
We aim to help you know what you need to know and while we deal with day to day questions and queries from GPs and Practice Managers, we also frequently provide support on a broad spectrum of issues, including but not limited to:
- Confidential pastoral support for GPs and Practice Managers
- Signposting to trusted local coaching/mentoring organisations
- Contractual issues
- Partnership disputes
- Performance procedures (Responding to Performance Concerns)
- Regulatory issues such as GMC hearings or CQC inspections
- Performers List issues
Latest Updates and Resources
These LMC guidance documents reflect the current procedures and rules that applied at the time of writing. They are designed to cover some typical situations that may arise and are inevitably generic in nature to some degree.
For this reason, we always encourage practices to contact us directly to discuss any issues with us, as well as referring to our guidance.
