Governing Body Observer, Local Medical Committee
Dr Harry Yoxall was a GP in Taunton for 30 years and is now the Medical Secretary of the Somerset Local Medical Committee (LMC), the representative body for GPs and their practices in Somerset.
The LMC seeks to work with all NHS organisations to provide responsive services closer to patients’ homes whilst developing and enhancing traditional general practice. The Committee also believes that CCGs offer a real opportunity for innovative thinking and positive engagement with patients and the public, as well as other agencies. It is fully committed to the principles of encouraging self care and informed decision making by patients about their own treatment.
