About us


We are the statutory committee representing people who provide community pharmacy services in Bury, Glossop, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan.

Our vision: To enable Community Pharmacy to improve health now and in the future

Our values: Innovative, Collaborative, Integrity, Excellent, Supportive

Greater Manchester LPC was established on 1st October 2016 following a vote by pharmacists across the region. They decided to combine forces as one LPC, rather than having separate LPCs for Ashton Leigh and Wigan, Bury and Rochdale, Manchester, Oldham Tameside & Glossop, Salford & Trafford, and Stockport. It also replaced Community Pharmacy Greater Manchester, a federated body that didn’t have an LPC’s legal status and ability to represent its members in formal negotiations.

The 13 members of our committee comprise:
• 5 independent contractor representatives, elected by their peers
• 2 AIMp representatives (Association of Independent Multiple Pharmacies)
• 6 CCA representatives (Company Chemists Association)

We represent the full spectrum of community pharmacists, from independent contractors to those practising as part of large national chains. The NHS has a legal duty to consult us on matters affecting pharmacy services.
