GPMplus is the trading name of LMC Services Yorkshire CIC, which delivers a range of wellbeing support services to primary care colleagues and teams.

LMC Services Yorkshire CIC was created by YORLMC, the professional voice for all NHS GPs and practice teams across North Yorkshire, the City of York, Bradford District and Craven.

YORLMC aspired to create additional capacity that would enable additional peer support and help be given to individual GPs and members of the wider General Practice and Primary Care teams.

LMC Services CIC has developed a programme of wellbeing services, schemes and events to support wellbeing and enable individuals to look after their own health and know when to seek help before difficulties arise, as well as supporting the resilience of teams. 

LMC Services Yorkshire CIC programmes are directly supported by NHSE/I resilience grant funds which means that the services offered can be delivered free at the point of access. YORLMC Ltd and LMC Services Yorkshire CIC thank NHSE/I and the CCGs operating in the North Yorkshire and Humber and West Yorkshire ICS regions for their ongoing support.
