Constitution and Governance
Governance and the LPC Constitution
The LPC Constitution is a key document setting out the membership of the committee and the constitutional rules under which it operates.
Community Pharmacy Humber operates according to the PSNC Model Constitution and follows a strict accountability procedure and governance arrangements.
To help LPCs judge the Committee’s performance and the quality of service offered to its contractors, the PSNC has drawn up performance criteria providing a framework for LPC self evaluation, the evaluation can be found on the PSNC website. Adopting a performance management framework strengthens the credibility of the LPC and supports sound management.
