North of Tyne Local Pharmaceutical Committee (LPC)

Representing Supporting Developing Promoting Community Pharmacy

Our Purpose

The LPC exists to represent and support the Community Pharmacy Contractors in our area. We are recognised by the NHS Act, and have statutory powers and significant influence. How we work is defined by our constitution. 

Our People

The role of the LPC members exists to represent contractors, and make decisions on their behalf. 

Members should keep up to date with community pharmacy news and contractual changes, prepare for LPC meetings and contribute to discussions. The committee is constituted of 10 members with a membership mix depending on the proportionality of independents and multiples across the area and in accordance with the LPC constitution. 

Currently, there are 6 CCA members and 4 independent members.  

Our LPC Officers

Following the election of a new chair in September  2021 who is a CCA member, the members decided to only have one Vice Chair who would be an independent member.

Previously in 2020-2021 there will be one LPC chair (Non Member), two LPC vice chairs.

(one selected from CCA members of the committee and one from independent committee members) and a treasurer.  

Job descriptions to support those committee members interested in standing for these roles can be found by clicking below.
