LNC's support the work of the regional and national branch of practice committees; negotiating on issues including terms and conditions of service and working arrangements.

The BMA values the importance of LNC’s as an independent trade union. The BMA is dedicated to protecting individual members and the collective interests of doctors and dentists in the workplace.


LNC's support the BMA

As a LNC representative, you can help members with materials that the BMA have developed to be used with Trusts for local use. These can be shared to promote  joining the BMA to help recruit more members.
