All local authority circulars

Local authority circulars (LACs) are issued by the Department of Health (DH) or by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES).  Some are issued jointly.  Recent DH and jointly-issued LACs are displayed here. Use the publications and letters library to find earlier ones. From 1 January 2007, DH LAC series numbers were amended to distinguish them from DfES-issued LACs. This is indicated by (DH) in the series number.
