Get involved with Lancashire & Cumbria LMCs


Lancashire Coastal

Lancashire Coastal LMC covers Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre and the coastal towns Fleetwood, Lytham and St Annes. It also covers the market towns of Kirkham, Garstang and Poulton together with many coastal & rural villages in between. It is divided into localities coterminous with the three Clinical Commissioning Groups.

The Committee represents all GPs within the constituency and has 21 members. Each member will, on average, represent a constituency of 23,000 patients, typically being cared for by 16 GPs. The committee tries to organise itself to have representation based on neighbourhoods. The number of practices that this represents will depend on the size of practices in each neighbourhood but will be around 3 to 5 practices.

The LMC meets each month at The Village Hotel in the evening on rotating days.

The officers of the committee are:

Chair: Dr Stephen Hardwick

Treasurer: Dr Jessica Rose

Secretary: Mr Peter Higgins

Executive Lead: Faye Ollis

Message from the LMC Chairman, Dr Stephen Hardwick

I consider it a great honour to be chairman of an organisation which has represented local GPs for over a hundred years and hope that principles such as duty, compassion, responsibility, fairness, and pragmatism which have characterised the work of the General Practitioner throughout that time can continue to guide us in the future.

If there is a vacancy for your area and you would like to be co-opted onto the LMC or observe one of our meetings please contact Maria
