What We Do
The main functions of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly LMC are to advise, support, inform and represent the interests of primary care doctors (General Practitioners, Locums, Out of Hours Doctors, GP Registrars and others) in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
The LMC is not financed in any way by the taxpayer, nor does it receive any other form of public funding. It is mainly funded by means of a Statutory Levy deducted from the personal remuneration of every GP in the area except those who provide Personal Medical Services (PMS) rather than General Medical Services to their patients. The PMS GPs in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly have voluntarily agreed to pay a levy towards the support of the LMC, thus enabling the LMC to continue to represent all the GPs in the area.
