LNC chairs conference 2018

The theme for this year's conference is: Developing and empowering the LNC.

Date: 30 April 2018

Location: London

Time: 9:30AM - 5:00PM

The healthcare landscape is continually changing, bringing with it new challenges for Local Negotiating Committees and the doctors they represent. These doctors will need the expertise of their LNCs, and the BMA is committed to supporting you, as LNC leaders, in this vital work.

LNC chairs, or a deputy from if they are unable to attend, are invited to attend this one day conference.

On the day we will be:

  • Looking at current challenges facing LNCs
  • Considering what LNCs can do to address the gender pay gap
  • Providing discussions on key topics including guardians of safe working; preventing bullying and harassment; using LNC surveys to effect change and job planning
  • Updating you on how the BMA can support you in your LNC role

Crucially, we want this day to be valuable for you. If you think there is an important topic you would like further information or discussion on, please let us know at [email protected]
