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.
