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!
