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 CPE 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 CPE has drawn up performance criteria providing a framework for LPC self evaluation, the evaluation can be found on the CPE website.  Adopting a performance management framework strengthens the credibility of the LPC and supports sound management.

Copies of the LPC Constitution and Code of Conduct & Accountability Framework are included in this section:
