Three LPCs in Surrey & Sussex


Representing, supporting, developing and promoting NHS community pharmacy across Sussex and Surrey.

Three local pharmaceutical committees in Surrey and Sussex work locally with the local NHS England area teams, CCGs, local authorities and other healthcare professionals to help plan healthcare services.

We negotiate and discuss pharmacy services with commissioners and give advice to community pharmacy contractors and others wanting to know more about local pharmacy.

Sharing an office with our medical equivalent Surrey & Sussex Local Medical Committee (LMC) makes it easier to coordinate with GPs so that they and community pharmacists can work together to deliver services to patients.

LPC members are either elected or nominated to join the committee to represent contractors (‘pharmacy owners’) views. They do not get paid, however they can claim expenses and locum fees for attending meetings.

Responsibilities:

  • Looking after the interests of the local contractors and to give value-for-money
  • Consultation with NHS England  – the LPC is a statutory body, recognised by Government and NHS England. NHS England is required to consult with LPCs but not required to act on that consultation.

LPCs are not responsible for service commissioning in any way, but they can provide support and advice about services.

LPCs are not allowed to hold a contract on behalf of pharmacies (eg a stop smoking service), however, they can facilitate the set up of a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) of interested pharmacies to work together to bid for services.

LPC meetings are open to all contractors and pharmacists and contractors are encouraged to join in. All contractors need to do is tell us in advance of the meeting that they would like to attend as an observer – please email us at  LPC@communitypharmacyss.co.uk
