About Us

The LMC Buying Group was originally set up to help GP practices save money on the products and services they regularly buy. Membership is now also open to GP Federations, Primary Care Networks, Dental Practices, independent pharmacies and other health and social care providers in the UK.

Our vision is to make life easier for health and social care providers by taking the hassle out of procurement and providing advocacy, additional support, advice, and the best possible customer service always.

We have thousands of members which means we have been able to negotiate excellent discounts on a wide range of products/services from our approved suppliers. Our suppliers won’t just offer you a great price one week and then ramp up the price the next so you can be assured that if you order from our suppliers you’ll get a great price every time you shop meaning you don’t have to ‘shop around’ to find the best deal every month anymore.

Membership is completely free and there is no compulsion to use all our suppliers. We cover our running costs through small commissions from our suppliers. You can sign up to membership by completing the form on the Members page.

Although you can order direct with the suppliers, please make sure you tell them your practice is a Buying Group member so they know to apply our discount to your order. You can also request quotes via this website by visiting the supplier pages and this ensures the correct discount is applied. You can also contact the Buying Group at any point if you have any questions or problems along the way.
