Lincolnshire and District Medical Services (LADMS) is a private limited company established in 2007 to provide medical services to the NHS. It is a federation of GPs, senior managers, hospital consultants and other health professionals. The company operates within the NHS family with a strong emphasis on the core values of the NHS and the vast majority of its shareholders are NHS employees.

Originally set up in East Lindsey, we expanded our membership in 2013 to include the majority of Lincolnshire, Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. The company is divided into regional units, each with its own representation at Board Meetings.


We work in partnership with Lincolnshire Community Health Services to provide the medical input into the integrated care model set up at Louth County Hospital. This includes doctors working on the medical and surgical wards at the hospital and the urgent care centre. This put GPs side by side with secondary care colleagues at the front line. We also provide medical cover to Skegness Hospital along similar lines to Louth.

We have contracts with Lincolnshire Partnership Trust to support their Mental Health services at The Peter Hodgkinson Centre.

Through LADMS Chambers we provide locums to local practices. We provide a physiotherapy service working from GP surgeries. This entails the management of patient records. For information concerning our policy on this the following leaflet can be downloaded: How-we-use-your-information-leaflet---LADMS-2016.pdf

We run a Dispensary Buying Group and regular educational meetings.

LADMS is also piloting an Elderly Care scheme in Hull, which is demonstrating the early signs of great success.
