Independents urgently needed for review of PSNC and LPCs: could it be you?

03 Dec 2019

David Wright, Professor of Pharmacy Practice from the School of Pharmacy at the University of East Anglia, has been appointed to lead an independent review of the roles and structures underpinning PSNC and the LPCs.

He would like to include two independent contractors on a national steering committee. Could you be one of them?

The review will lead to recommendations that are intended to optimise PSNC and LPC contractor representation and support and ensure that the national network structure is working efficiently and is fit for the future.

Meetings will be in London at 1.00pm, with an attendance fee and travel expenses paid. Dates are set for December 19th, January 23rd, March 5th and April 2nd.

Any independent contractors not currently on an LPC are invited to send David Wright an expression of interest in no more than 50 words to

The NPA regards this as a very significant review, with potentially far-reaching consequences for the future of our members, who deserve both a sustainable national contractual framework and effective local support.

If you would like to discuss the matter with the NPA, please contact Michael Lennox, the NPA’s Local Integration Lead Michael will be able to help you prepare your application for the role and discuss with you the importance of having strong representation from the independent sector.
