Sue Timberlake - Group Practice Manager

I joined the Practice in 2006 temporarily and am still here today!

I am responsible for the financial administration of the Practice and Pharmacy. I gained most of my experience working for large corporate organisations in Nottingham, but enjoy the diversity of working at Long Clawson.

Rachael Ashworth - Deputy Practice Manager

Originally from a background in Insurance & Accountancy, I started in general practice in 1999. I have had many varied roles from reception, dispensing, health care assistant and administration. Having joined The Stackyard Surgery in 2011, I am now responsible for the day to day running of both The Stackyard Surgery & Woolsthorpe Surgery.

Mrs Cherry Lawrence - Senior Receptionist

I joined the practice in January 1990, after various secretarial jobs and raising two daughters. I started as a receptionist and have now progressed to Reception Manager. My responsibilities are ensuring the smooth running of the clinics, managing the reception staff and managing the ground floor services.

I have seen a huge amount of change since I started, including various extensions to the building and the development of computers within the practice.

If you have any questions regarding the clinics we provide please feel free to contact myself on 01664 822214 extension 1

Julie Jaggard - Practice Management Administrator

I joined the Practice in 2012 in this newly-created position.

I provide administrative support to the Practice Manager and accounts support to the Assistant Practice Manager. It is an interesting and varied role, keeping me on my toes! I also work closely with the Patient Participation Group and this has proved to be enjoyable.

Gina Cooke - Medical Secretary

I am married with 2 grown up sons. I started at Long Clawson in 2003 as a Medical Receptionist and then I moved upstairs to become a Data Administrator for Practice Based Commissioning. Practice Based Commissioning enables the surgery to provide secondary care for its patients.

I am now PA to Doctors Dorling and Griffiths. I also deal with doctors on-call rotas and Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease recalls.

Joy Bateson - Medical Secretary

I joined the practice in May 1999 as a Receptionist.

In 2007, the NHS introduced the ‘Choose and Book’ system into practices. This system is all about giving the patient choice of treatment, hospital and appointment. In order for the system to run smoothly, the Practice required a secretary to work for the doctors. I became secretary in 2007 and worked for all the GPs and ran the Choose and Book system for them.

As the Practice expanded, and the GPs became busier, in 2010 there was a need to share my workload and take on extra responsibilities from the doctors. I am now one of two PAs and work primarily for Doctors Wooding, Rathbone and Rice.

I also deal with the Diabetic recall system and administer the Thyroid register.

I have lived in the Vale all my life and have two children. I live with my family in Stathern.
