Coronavirus (COVID-19) LDC ADVICE
The Local Dental Committee (Morgannwg LDC) is a Statutory Committee that must be consulted by its corresponding Health Body (Swansea Bay University Health Board) on matters relating to NHS General Dental Practitioners, such matters being contractual matters, disciplinary matters and commissioning matters. The Local Dental Committee also collaborates with the corresponding Health Body on matters relating to the provision of General Dental Practitioner Services through a Liaison Group consisting of LDC and Health Board officials, and which meets every two months. It also has representation on other relevant Health Board committees in accordance with its statutory functions.
Morgannwg LDC Mission Statement
Morgannwg LDC will represent the views of its Members and Subscribers locally to the Swansea Bay University Health Board, those views being established through LDC meetings and where appropriate through consultation with subscribers. The LDC will advise, support and represent subscribers in contract disputes and negotiations with the health board and any other matters relating to their NHS contracts. All subscribers are invited to LDC meetings but colleagues who are not elected members or co-opted members are asked to contact the secretary by email to notify of this intention so that appropriate seating arrangements can be made.
Morgannwg LDC is at present funded by a Statutory Levy, paid by subscribing practitioners on a monthly basis. The Levy is used to pay committee expenses such as meeting rooms, hire of equipment, reimbursement of loss of income for representatives on LDC duty, travelling expenses for representatives and other administrative expenses.
