The London Consultants' Association was formed in 1998 and comprises leading consultants within and outside the capital who work in a variety of private hospitals. The LCA recognises that the changing private healthcare landscape in London, and elsewhere, and changing patterns of employment practises and increasing regulatory requirements mean that now, more than ever, experienced consultants and those new to private practice require support and mentoring to maintain and develop their practices. The LCA is committed to ensure continued independence of clinical decision making for Consultants professional integrity for the benefit of patients. It aims to support consultants in the private sector through mentorship in clinical and business matters.
