As you might have noticed we have a new website!
It’s been four years since we last redesigned our website so we felt it was time for a makeover…
We hope you like the new site and please spend a few minutes discovering all the useful news, guidance and support we have added.
Why not bookmark the LMC site in your ‘Favourites’ so you can quickly find us whenever you need help or support from us.
As part of our ongoing commitment to keep constituents informed about the latest news and events, Nottinghamshire LMC Ltd joined Twitter in 2012.
We still produce our two newsletters – GP Practice News and Between the Lines which you can view by going to the Newsletters page but we thought it was important to use social networking sites as well.
