An opportunity for PMs to hear the latest guidance for practices from the team at Wessex LMCs
A core part of the role of Wessex LMCs is pastoral support. The LMC offers one to one support for GPs and Practice Managers. The LMC aims to support and develop individuals as they progress through their careers to support your practice and YOU.
The LMC receives many queries on the subject of death certification, cremation and Coronial regulations. It is incumbent on those working with the bereaved to recognise that these processes can cause significant distress to them.
This guide has been written to help you navigate the final few months of your GP training. By now you will be totally au fait with your ePortfolio and what is required of you as a GP trainee. As you qualify the rules change again and up until now there hasn’t been a clear checklist of all the expected processes you need to do from all the different organisations.
Wessex Local Medical Committees (LMCs) is the representative team, on behalf of the LMC Committees, covering all GPs and their Practices, operating across the counties of Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, Bath & North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire. We also provide services to the Islands of Jersey and Guernsey.
