How to Become an LMC Committee Member

Elections are held every two years under the terms of the LMC constitution, and all GPs are eligible for nomination and election. Sessional GPs i.e. those who are not Partners, may choose to stand in their geographical area, or for sessional seats. Please send your details to office@wessexlmcs.org.uk should you wish to be considered for election.
