LPC Members Seminar 2013

Thursday, 20 June, 2013 10am to 4pm
Malmaison, Manchester

Also running 26th June 2013 in London at The Pullman Hotel 

Following requests from LPCs we are running again the popular PSNC members seminar. Although aimed at new LPC members and Secretaries the seminar is also of value to longer standing members and officers wanting a refresher and update: the seminars include an overview of the new market entry regulations, the role of the LPC member, and the LPC members’ responsibilities in planning the future structure and strategy of the LPC in the new commissioning environment. As a matter of governance all LPC members must receive training, if required, to carry out their role, properly discharge the duties of an LPC member and make informed decisions affecting their contractors.


The seminar covers a wide range of LPC administration issues and information needed by all LPC members and officers including:

• NHS Regulations – all NHS regulations that LPC members must be aware of and understand to carry out their role- including the new market entry regulations and DH guidance; PNAs; what LPCs need to take into account when considering contract applications; sanctions; hours; dealing with complaints

• The role of the LPC member

• Ensuring the LPC is fit for purpose in terms of structure, a business plan, human resources and budget

• LPC function and responsibilities; statutory obligations to consult the LPC

• LPC constitution and governance

• The role of the LPC officers

• The LPC members responsibilities and accountability

• The LPC members role in managing LPC employees and self employed

• Managing change

• Meeting skills

• LPC strategic planning

• Competencies for the LPC member

• LPC finance- how the LPC is funded and what the levy can and cannot be spent on; LPC expenses policy; preparing an LPC budget and monitoring spend
