What is a local medical committee (LMC)?

LMCs are local representative committees of NHS GPs and represent their interests in their localities to the NHS health authorities. LMCs interact and work with – and through – the General Practitioners Committee as well as other branch of practice committees and local specialist medical committees in various ways, including conferences.

You can find your LMC contact details in the section below. Note that LMCs are not regional BMA offices. If you wish to contact the BMA regional office please email us or phone 0300 123 1233.
