We are committed to be a source of support, advice and reference for all dentists in the Stockport area. The LDC has an important role in acting as a bridge between the profession and management organisations.
What is the LDC?
The Committee is a statutory body representing in the main General Dental Practitioners (GDPs) based in the ares of the relevant Area Team for Stockport.
The local representative committee for independent Dental practitioners, the LDC has the statutory right to be consulted by the above Area Teams and Strategic Health Authority on issues relating to the dental profession including negotiations around Personal Dental Services .
The LDC is an independent body paid for by GDPs themselves via a Statutory Levy based on a specified amount per practice, per annum. Expenditure of this Levy is restricted to administration of the Committee and may not be used for anything else. In addition, GDPs are asked to contribute to a Voluntary Levy, which is used to finance such events as LDC Annual Conference, British Dental Guilds etc…
The main function of the Committee is to represent and support General Dental Practitioners; to ensure that GDPs are properly valued, and their skills properly utilised; that, whilst serving the public, they are able to uphold appropriate standards of practice.
What are Area Teams?
Area Teams are statutory NHS bodies that are accountable to their Strategic Health Authority.They are responsible for securing the provision of a range of services including commissioning NHS dentistry.
Any dental practitioner working in Stockport is welcome to attend meetings with the prior notification being made to the Secretary and subsequent consent of the Chairman.
