Practice Management

Mr Adam Beard

Practice Manager

Adam looks after the smooth running of both surgeries. He joined the Practice in April 2016 and is an experienced Practice Manager.


Practice Finance Manager



Emma undertakes administrative work and is responsible for sending out recall letters to patients who are on the chronic disease registers, calling patients for their NHS Health Checks, managing the childhood immunisation programme, maintaining the register for COPD patients and sending of Met Office alerts.  She also orders practice supplies.



The work of a doctor’s receptionist is exceptionally important as they are often the first person you speak to about your problem.  They have a very difficult role, trying to encourage patients to give them information they require, whilst maintaining and working within the practice rules.

All of our receptionists work at both sites, but for continuity the receptionists also have one site which is their 'home' site.

Our team located at The College Yard Surgery are Sandra and Janet.

Janet is the lead for carers at College Yard practice.

At Highnam Surgery we predominantly have Fran and Julie in reception together with Judith who works at both sites and who also does some dispensing.



Carol is responsible for all referrals, insurance reports, letters and other administrative duties.


Nikky's main task is the typing and processing of referral letters.
