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.

Finance and Administration Manager

Kerrie Rowlands

Finance and Administration Manager - 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.

Business Support and Advisor

Deborah Darlington

Deborah joined the LMC in April 2020. She originally trained as a Radiographer and then after a career break for her children changed roles and has been a Practice Manager in Trafford for nearly 22 years. She recently retired from Urmston Group Practice but was keen to continue with a role in Primary Care. She is also working as part time Manager for the Trafford West PCN.

Deborah feels strongly that all Practices should have equal access to information and opportunities and that treatment of all Practices is equitable.
