Devon LMC Newsletter

Devon LMC Newsletter

We keep GPs and Practice Managers informed about current issues via our monthly newsletter. The LMC works with local healthcare colleagues to commission articles on current issues. Each month the newsletter is sent electronically to all GP Partners, Salaried GPs, Practice Managers and some external stakeholders.

We welcome suggestions about articles that would be useful to include in the newsletter - if you have any ideas or feedback please contact
