What have we been up to?

Welcome to our new and improved Calderdale LMC website! 

Dr Hussain has been working on the site to make it easier to navigate and more engaging. It is still a work in progress but we hope that the site will be fully functional in its new format soon. 

The home page will be regularly updated with snippets of relevant information including News, Events and recent uploads to the site itself.

We would like to request your feedback regarding the new site as well as suggestions as to how we could improve and develop it further. Please feel free to pass your comments to one of the LMC members. Alternatively, you can use the contact form to let us know what you think. 

You can also use the contact form to send us correspondence or if you feel you may require the help/assistance of the LMC.

If in doubt, contact us! We will always try to help and can signpost you to other relevant organisations if necessary. 


 

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

 

Dr Nagpaul and Dr Chaudhry have been working on a new constitution for the LMC. The draft version has had some amendments and will be taken back to the lawyers for review. 

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.
