2018-19 Session: Miss Susie Hewitt, Consultant in Emergency Medicine

Miss Susie Hewitt qualified with an honours degree in Medicine in 1987. She was appointed to a Consultant post in Emergency Medicine in Derby with special interest in children and young people in 1995 not long after the birth of her daughter, Sophie.

At that time she joined just two existing consultants in Emergency Medicine as the first female EM consultant and apparently the youngest consultant ever appointed in Derby. Susie now works in a team of 22 Consultants in Emergency Medicine and 4 Consultants in Paediatric Emergency Medicine.

Susie led on a 10-year project to redesign a new build ED and relocate all acute services to one site. Her only claim to fame is appearing in all four episodes of the Channel 4 programme “Superhospital”!

She has a special interest in the legal aspects of medicine and specifically inquest work, having written over 130 reports for HM Coroner and appearing in Court to give evidence on around 40 occasions.

Susie is an examiner for the Royal College of Emergency Medicine and a member of a number of College committees, currently sitting on the RCEM Sustainable Working Practices Committee. Susie is a co-author of the 2012 and 2018 Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health Intercollegiate Standards for Urgent and Emergency Care for Children.

Susie’s personal perspective on what happens when personal and professional pressures collide is one of the inspirations for her passion for wellbeing in Emergency Medicine.

In 2017, Susie was awarded the RCEM president’s medal for her contribution to Emergency Medicine. In August 2018, Sophie follows in her mother’s footsteps as she embarks on her own career in medicine.

Susie maintains a sense of equilibrium by swimming, or pottering in the garden preferably in the sunshine.

2017-2018 Session: Dr Stuart Holloway, MA (Cantab) MB BChir DFFP DRCOG PGCert FRCGP, Senior Partner at Macklin Street Surgery, Programme Director for the Derby General Practice Specialty Training Programme.

Dr Holloway graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1990. He worked at Addenbrooke’s Hospital and Ipswich Hospital before coming to Derby in 1993 where he undertook a medical rotation at the Derbyshire Royal Infirmary prior to embarking on Vocational Training in General Practice. He gained Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners with distinction in 1998 and became a partner at Macklin Street Surgery in 1998, becoming involved shortly afterwards in assisting with the national pilot for pre-registration house officer placements in General Practice. He became a GP Trainer in 2002, a post he continues alongside his associated GP Educational Supervisor role. As a GP Teaching Fellow at the University of Nottingham Graduate Entry Medical School at Derby from its inception in 2003 until 2009, Dr Holloway assisted with the development and delivery of the Clinical Skills Course before becoming a Programme Director for the Derby Specialty Training Programme in General Practice in 2009. The programme manages the education of over 100 GP registrars, in addition to managing more than 70 GP trainers and prospective trainers working in over 30 practices in the Derbyshire area. Dr Holloway led on the successful development and implementation of an End of Life Care Course for GP registrars across the East Midlands Healthcare Workforce Deanery in 2011 and an International Medical Graduate Conference for Health Education East Midlands in 2013.

Dr Holloway served as a Director of the Derby FPC Commissioning Board for three years from 2006 and subsequently sat on the GP Workforce Committee and General Practice Transformation Action Group.

Dr Holloway became Managing Partner at Macklin Street Surgery in 2010 and Senior Partner in 2013. He led on the Quality and Outcomes Framework at the practice for 13 years; during this period the surgery consistently gained very high performance scores. Dr Holloway is the partnership lead for business, finance and legal matters, and is registered as the practice’s CQC Manager. He worked with the Partnership, Business Manager and practice staff to gain an award of Outstanding from the Care Quality Commission in 2016.

In 2008 Dr Holloway led Macklin Street Surgery in becoming one of a small number of multi-professional learning organisations in the East Midlands, and later achieved additional success in leading on contract bids on behalf of the practice for GP care provision for the Derby Intermediate Care Service and Community for Interprofessional Learning funding. Furthermore, he led on the provision of GP care for two transitional care wards at the London Road Community Hospital in 2010.

Dr Holloway worked as a GP Appraiser from 2003-2016, providing peer appraisals for local GP’s in preparation for revalidation. In 2014, he co-founded InterCare Health Limited, a joint venture company formed between local general practitioners and Derby Hospitals Foundation Trust to provide integrated diabetes care for patients in the Derby area. In 2015 Dr Holloway founded the Derbyshire Integrated Healthcare Foundation which he currently chairs. The organisation works with universities and Health Education England to provide training and work experience placements in practices across South Derbyshire.

Dr Holloway has worked as an undergraduate tutor and examiner for the University of Nottingham and as an Assessor and Moderator for the East Midlands Selection Centre for GP Training. Alongside his Programme Director role, Dr Holloway has worked for Health Education England, working across the East Midlands, in his capacity of Associate Postgraduate Dean since 2016 and is currently working at the primary-secondary care interface on performance monitoring for doctors in training. Dr Holloway was awarded Fellowship of The Royal College of General Practitioners in 2008, notably for his work in medical education, and was presented with the Health Education England Excellence in Education HEEM Fellow Award in 2017.

Dr Holloway is married to Frances, and is proud father to Laura and Philip. In his spare time, Dr Holloway is a keen flautist in a chamber ensemble, The Robin Road Players, playing in occasional charity concerts and at the Derby Music Society. On a voluntary basis, Dr Holloway has worked with local schools to provide support for sixth form students applying to read medicine through the provision of mock medical school interviews. He is Deputy Warden at Derby Cathedral and enjoys horse riding, gardening and dog walking with the family’s Smooth Collie, Echo. He is currently undertaking a master’s degree in medical education with the University of Dundee.

2016-2017 Session

Mr Keith Jones

2015-2016 Session

Dr John Charlton


Until May of this year I was a full time GP partner in Mickleover, joining in 1983, when my late father was also a partner. I have had a number of clinical jobs over the years including Rheumatology, neuro-rehabilitation (folk may remember my letters from King’s Lodge) and then in the last 10 years helping at the Dermatology department. I help out as a tutor at Cardiff University with my dermatology hat on.
Presently I’m what is called a portfolio GP which includes locum GP work and back at the Dermatology department. The last few weeks have included surgeries in Hartington, Mickleover and for the military. I am just back from two weeks GP in Sennelager Barracks, Germany.
I’ve always lived in the practice area, at the moment in Kirk Langley. My main passion (after my family of course!) is two-seater aeroplanes and I even have a small airstrip at the house, amongst the sheep and hens. I can often be found at weekends in the ‘control tower’ at Tatenhill manning the radio.
I’m honoured to be asked to be the president of our society. I have put together a variety of talks from eminent speakers which I hope will be of interest. There will be the usual meal before the meetings, at the Medical School, which I do hope will encourage us to network. E mails have been sent to as many GP practice managers as I can find and I hope you will all encourage as many colleagues to join the society.
This presidency role is very new to me and if there is anything I can do for the society, or anything you feel is amiss,  please let me know.
