About us

The Local Pharmaceutical Committee (LPC) represents community pharmacy contractors in the Community Pharmacy North East central footprint. The committee consists of Pharmacists representing private contractors, public companies, and Pharmacists employed by contractors.

It is composed of four members who are appointed by the Company Chemists Association (CCA), whose members include Boots,  Superdrug Well, and the supermarket chains.

Two members are appointed by the Association of Independent Multiple Pharmacies (AIMp)

A further six members are elected by independent pharmacy contractors.

A Chief Officer is appointed by the committee.

The LPC is an independent organisation within the NHS which negotiates on behalf of community pharmacy with NHS England, Public Health Durham, Public Health Sunderland and local Clinical Commissioning Groups to ensure that the pharmaceutical service meets local needs.
