Local Negotiating Committees (LNCs) in Wales

LNCs represent doctors of all grades who are employed directly by health boards in Wales. 

They have a mandate to negotiate on issues affecting terms and conditions of service, working arrangements and other matters affecting doctors' working lives.

The BMA has a LNC in every health board throughout Wales.
