Gateshead & South Tyneside Local Pharmaceutical Committee represents all Pharmacy contractors regardless of company (including multiples and independents). Our committee is made up from a representative sample to reflect the mix of pharmacies in the area.
By 2013 Gateshead and South Tyneside Local Pharmaceutical Committee (LPC) will be a structured and efficient organisation with mutually beneficial alliances, capable members, specialist advisers and have a record of achievement for all stakeholders, enabling the people of Gateshead and South Tyneside to receive the highest possible quality of pharmaceutical care from community pharmacy.
Over the next five years the Gateshead and South Tyneside Local Pharmaceutical Committee will increase its capability and capacity as an effective representative committee for community pharmacy and improve the range and quality of services commissioned from community pharmacy contractors by the NHS.
