About us

lulworth coveDorset LPC exists to help and advise pharmacy contractors in all NHS matters and to improve pharmaceutical services to the local population of Dorset. Its primary aim is to accurately reflect and put forward the professional views and aspirations of all pharmacists engaged in community pharmacy that provide NHS pharmaceutical services in Dorset.

In addition, the LPC is involved in local negotiations for enhanced services such as the provision of extended hours, supply of emergency hormonal contraception, needle exchange, supervised methadone consumption, smoking cessation services and services managed under patient group directions. The LPC members are also actively involved in supporting the implementation of the pharmacy contractual framework both with their contractors.
