Name of creator(s):  Lothian Area Medical Committee and Lothian Local Medical Committee

Administrative history: In 1974 a new Lothian Area Medical Committee (LAMC) was created to replace the old Executive Council and Local Medical Committee system.  It had sub-committees including a General Practitioners Sub-Committee (GPSC) and a Hospital Services Sub-Committee. Lothian Local Medical Committee (LLMC) took the place of the existing local medical committee for the Lothians and Peebles, with office-bearers from the General Practitioners Sub-Committee taking the same posts within the Lothian Local Medical Committee. The link between these two committees was sufficiently close that they shared an AGM and a lot of the papers cannot be easily divided between the two committees.
