LCA has a social programme as well as support

Consultants do not have to work in the capital to join The London Consultants’ Association (LCA).

It welcomes members from further afield and aims to offer a friendly and accessible forum for specialists in the private healthcare sector.

The LCA also hopes they will share experiences, knowledge and expertise with one another and be seen as a respected voice of influence. 

A busy annual social programme includes:

 Two ‘influential speaker’ dinners and there are informal quarterly Friday networking lunches providing doctors with small forums for forging business links; 

 Sponsored cocktail-hour socials are a chance for introducing new members;

 A medico-legal group, run in conjunction with Hempsons’ solicitors, many of whom write regularly for Independent Pract­itioner Today, convenes four times a year over alternating working breakfasts and dinners to keep members up to speed on case law and practice. 

LCA leaders envisage that a varied programme of topical talks on medical, educational, legal and business development, delivered in person or virtually, will increasingly form the bedrock of its member support.
