Who we are

The Primary Care Team is based mostly at Sovereign House but work closely with members of the NHS England North Region (Yorkshire & Humber team). We’re here to support practices with a whole host of matters that come up in day to day business as well as progress the Primary Care Strategic Model. We want to make sure our practices are best placed to manage the challenges and take opportunities available at these times of pressure and change.

Although we have links and work closely with other teams at the CCG, the main team is made up of:

  • Carolyn Ogle – Associate Director of Primary Care & Commissioning
  • Karl Roberts – Primary Care Manager
  • Emma Ross – Primary Care Support Officer – Engagement
  • Kelly Smith – Primary Care Support Officer – Commissioning
  • Genna Miller – Finance Manager
  • Adele Spence – Contacts Manager
  • Zara Head – Primary Care Quality Nurse
  • Dr Nabeel Alsindi – GP & Clinical Lead for Primary Care
  • Chris Empson – Primary Care Intelligence Programme Manager
  • Gemma Sessions – Senior Data and Systems Analyst

With support from the following based at Oak House, Rotherham:
