About the Local Pharmaceutical Committee

The Local Pharmaceutical Committee (LPC) represents community pharmacy contractors in Durham and Darlington. The committee consists of Pharmacists representing private contractors, public companies, and Pharmacists employed by contractors.

It is composed of six members who are appointed by the Company Chemists Association (CCA), whose members include Boots, Lloyds, Well, and the supermarket chains.

One member is appointed by the Association of Independent Multiple Pharmacies (AIMp)

A further seven members are elected by independent pharmacy contractors.

A Chief Officer is appointed by the committee.

The LPC is an independent organisation within the NHS which negotiates on behalf of community pharmacy with NHS England, Public Health Durham, Public Health Darlington and local Clinical Commissioning Groups to ensure that the pharmaceutical service meets local needs.
