Mayur has been a practising GP in Leicestershire since 1991. He has combined an active career as a working GP with high profile leadership roles in the Royal College of General Practitioners, National Health Service (NHS) and in the wider health community. As the youngest doctor to be appointed Chairman of Council of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) – the largest medical royal college in the UK and academy of family medicine in Europe – Professor Lakhani instituted and led the development of the document, The future direction of general practice, a roadmap which was published in 2007. This document first set out the vision of GP federations.

He graduated from the University of Dundee in 1983. He has been a GP for 26 years in the same practice in Sileby, near Loughborough. The practice has won awards for quality, including the 2014 national long term conditions team of the year and has a long standing PPG and is part of a federation. As CCG clinical lead, he pioneered a scheme for palliative care which is now in used by over a 100 practices. He was a trustee and Chairman of The National Council for Palliative Care from 2008 until 2015.

Mayur was elected President in 2017. He was also awarded a senior founding fellowship of the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management in October 2017 (by assessment of portfolio).

Appointed CBE in the 2007 Queen’s Birthday Honours list "for playing a fundamental role in raising the profile of general practice," Professor Lakhani has been included in the Top 50 most influential people in the UK health service by Health Service Journal in 2006 and 2007. In addition, Professor Lakhani has served on a number of advisory groups including the Chief Medical Officer’s Advisory Group on Medical Regulation and Assurance, and Chaired the Secretary of State’s Inquiry into primary care access for BAME patients.
