One in five London practices could close, warn LMCs


"Michelle Drage | Other GP16 Feb 2016 11:11am "TDo not trust LMC ever. They are all part of CCG and hunt promoting 7 days and privatising of NHS " I think that could be libelous Ms/Mr/Dr Anonymous Practice Manager. It certainly isn't true." Michelle, I am not the practice manager @ 8.04pm, I do not know who that is, but my experience is that he/she is correct. Over many many years my LMC has often acted like a mouthpiece for HA/PCT/CCG and can not be relied upon to support GPs interests over those of the current version of the health authority. At times I have wondered if they have forgotten who is paying their wages. I am glad for you Michelle that your experience of an LMC is different. But some of us have very poor experience of, and no faith in, our LMC.
