What else have the LMC been doing in the last few weeks? 

 

Dr Nagpaul has been involved in contacting companies that could provide DPO services for Practices in accordance with the new GDPR legislation and has managed to source a company alongside PGPA to do so at a reasonable price. 

Dr Loh has set up an email listserver for Practice Managers in the area. 

Dr Loh has been liaising with the CCG regarding remuneration for Practices registering patients who have moved from Burley Street Surgery. 

Dr Hussain and Dr Nagpaul facilitated a session for GP Trainees in May 2018 regarding the LMC. Following this the LMC welcomed 2 GP Trainees at July's LMC Meeting. All GP Trainees are welcome to attend meetings as observers but the LMC will be looking at appointing an official representative/co-representatives in the near future should the trainees be interested.
