Welcome to Beds and Herts LMC

Beds and Herts LMC Ltd aims to support GPs and practices to aspire to excellence in patient care, by advising on and promoting the development of all aspects of general practice”.

Your Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Local Medical Committee is proud of its strong values in Leadership, Expertise, Integrity, Adaptability and Collaboration.

We support the development of high-quality general practice as we know that it means patients receive excellent health care when GPs are supported to be at their very best.   All our work promotes teamwork and multidisciplinary practice, and our services and support facilitate this wherever possible.

We do not condone poor performance or poor professional behaviour but we recognise that GPs do need support when times are tough and in particular we will come to the aid of colleagues going through performance or disciplinary procedures in order to ensure they are dealt with fairly and appropriately.

Our motto is that ‘If it’s good for patients, it’s good for GPs’.
