Meet the Executive Team


Chief Executive with Treasurer Responsibilities

Eve Mannerings

Eve qualified as a RGN in 1999 and worked as Specialist Nurse at Wythenshawe Hospital until 2005. She spent the next 11 years in numerous roles within Manchester and Trafford CCGs, with the most recent position as Primary Care Quality Lead in Trafford CCG.

Eve joined the LMC as Chief Executive in October 2016 and enjoys using her Nursing and Commissioning background to make positive changes on behalf of General Practice across the Health and Social care system in both Salford and Trafford.

Her professional passions are forming strong relationships with key stakeholders, ensuring efficiency and fairness, reducing inequality and injustice and bringing about positive change. In her spare time she loves photography and spending time with her 2 children.

Chair

Dr Aarya Prabhakaran

Dr Prabhakaran qualified in 1998 and completed his GP VTS scheme in Trafford and Salford in 2006. He has been a GP partner since 2008 and currently, managing partner of Firsway health centre in Sale. He also works for GTD Healthcare as a GP advisor dealing with clinical complaints and performance. In addition Dr Prabhakaran is a GP trainer, appraiser and works as a GP specialist advisor for CQC.

He is passionate about improving efficiency, quality and reducing bureaucracy in General Practice.

Vice Chair

Dr Jenny Walton

Dr Walton trained at Hope and has worked ever since in the Salford area as GP partner, locum and salaried GP for the past 30 years. She had a brief sojourn into occupational health in the mid 1990s but missed general practice so much that she had to return to it. She is married to local GP, Martin Hayes. She is the clinical lead for older people and integrated care for the CCG and became a member of the LMC representing salaried GPs in 2011 and relishes the opportunity to fight the cause of Salford and Trafford GPs in these ever changing times in our beloved NHS.

She feels she may be a novice when it comes to medical politics but is passionate about her colleagues and will do everything in her power to represent them.

P.S. She has been known to tread the "boards" from time to time and has recently had "the joyous experience of working with Kay Mellor" on the BBC drama "The Syndicate" where she appeared briefly opposite Timothy Spall; watch this space.

Executive Assistant

Kerrie Rowlands

Executive Assistant - Kerrie joined the LMC in May 2011 and continues to provide the Executive with all aspects of business support services. She has seen the role evolve and develop over the years and continues to enjoy the variety and flexibility the role gives her. She has been amazed at how complex GP contracts are, and how busy the LMC is as an organisation.

Outside of work, Kerrie enjoys spending time with her family and long walks in the countryside with her dog.

Secretary

Dr Siobhan Brennan
