Helping LMCs to shape the future of local healthcare
Local medical committees (LMCs) are important players in realising the ambitions of the GP Forward View and the development of GP services at scale that will be essential for the development of new care models. As sustainability and transformation plans (STPs) unfold the LMC can also ensure that the voice of general practice is strongly represented in the ongoing debate about service priorities and system planning. Last month PCC ran a workshop for members of Cheshire LMC, which provided an overview of the new contracting models that will form the basis for the accountable care organisations of the future. Delegates heard from Robert McGough of Capsticks on legal aspects and governance issues and from Mike Smith, GP and CEO of Haverstock Healthcare on practical aspects of developing new care models including how to involve general practice in STPs. One delegate said: “I now have a better understanding of ACOs and some of the huge challenges involved in setting one up.” To find out how PCC can support your LMC, contact email@example.com.
