Local negotiations

Local negotiations

The negotiating processes have become more ‘centralised’ to meet Devon-wide and commissioning strategies. In such a rapidly altering environment the LMC works with colleagues from the Area Team of NHS England, Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group, Public Health and the South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group to establish a monthly negotiating forum at which and a team of trained LMC negotiators, broadly representing the various localities of Devon is fielded.

Local GPs and Practice Manager representatives from each area work with commissioners and the Local Authorities team to examine contractual issues. The meetings ensure thorough communication and formal agreements between all parties during these rapidly changing times.
