England LMCs conference 2019: Full coverage

English LMCs are to vote on whether to drop home visits from the core GP contract, highlight concerns over the impact of pensions tax and debate the future of general practice under primary care networks at their conference this week. Read GPonline's full coverage of the event.

Rising workload and the introduction of primary care networks look set to dominate proceedings at this year's England LMCs conference, which takes place in London on 22 November. Motions up for debate also highlight concerns over pension taxes and medicines shortages.

GPs will demand the power to close lists and drop home visits due to rising workload. Meanwhile LMCs will condemn NHS England for producing a report that suggested fraud in general practice was widespread and vote on whether GPC England should raise a formal complaint on the matter.
