Dr Cheryl Rhoades (f) (Partner)

Trained & Qualified from the University of Cape Town (South Africa) in 2008 and awarded Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MBChB.

My early career was spent practicing medicine across South Africa including hospital settings in both Cape Town & East London, then in both a Community Health setting and  Psychiatric hospital.

In 2013 I decided to  bring my extensive A&E experience to  Abergavenny (Wales), after which I was a Resident Medical Officer for Nuffield Hospital in Derby. During this time I obtained a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in International Health Management from the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management May 2015.

Desiring a shift towards practicing family medicine I began GP Training in July 2015 through the Lincolnshire GP Vocational Training Scheme which afforded me a wide range of placements as a registrar, gaining experience in, but not limited to obstetrics and gynaecology; paediatrics, psychiatry & general medicine.

Upon completion of my training as a GP, I Graduated MRCGP in 2018 (Membership of the Royal College of General Practice, England), going on to practice in multiple practices & clinics in Lincolnshire. I became a part of the Church Walk Surgery team in 2019 and became a Partner in 2022.

Mrs Julia Mannion (f) (Partner)
Advanced Nurse Practitioner

I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1992 and worked mainly in acute medicine until joining the Royal Air Force in 1993. During my time in the RAF, I worked in acute medicine, coronary care and oncology before moving into primary care in 1995. I gained several post graduate qualifications including asthma and allergy management, family planning, coronary heart disease management, aeromedical evacuation and gained the title of specialist practitioner in primary care. In 2005 I also qualified as an independent nurse prescriber. In 2008 I was awarded a BSc hons degree from City University London. In 2016 I was awarded MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice from Lincoln University.

I have worked at Church Walk Surgery since 2007 and my current role as Advanced Nurse Practitioner involves dealing with acute illnesses, chronic diseases and I also have a special interest in women’s health.  I became a Partner in 2022.


Sister Vicky Arch (f)
Specialist Practice Nurse

I completed my nurse training at Sir Gordon Roberts’s school of Nursing in Northampton and qualified as an RGN in 1995, following which I worked in General Surgery at Kettering General Hospital. In 1997 I moved to Germany and worked for the British Army in general practice, obtaining a diploma in Asthma management in 1998.

After moving back to the UK, I continued working in General Practice in both military and civilian medical centres, during which time I further trained to obtain diplomas in Diabetic management (2000), Coronary Care and Heart disease (2004) and COPD management (2010).
Additionally, in 2009 I completed an honours degree in health studies with a Specialist Award in General Practice at Bangor University.
In 2013 I became a Non-Medical prescriber.

My current role involves managing patients with Diabetes. I also manage patients who have had a cardiac event in the past, along with supporting colleagues in managing COPD/CKD.  I also see patients with minor illness along with some treatment room duties including cervical cytology, wounds and Spirometry testing (ARTP qualification 2018).


Nurse Lucy Merrill (f)


Nurse Jo-Ann Chappell (f)
Practice Nurse

I began my career studying Adult Nursing at the University of Nottingham in 2002, qualifying as a Registered General Nurse in 2005.  During my early career as a newly qualified nurse I worked at Newark Hospital (Sherwood Forest Hospital Trust) on a busy acute medical ward that specialised in Stroke and respiratory medicine. I thoroughly enjoyed my eight years with them, expanding my skills widely beginning a BSc Hons Degree in Health and Social sciences that covered a vast array of subjects from Tissue Viability, Palliative care, Pain management and Evidence based practice to name a few. During this time I also completed the Advanced Life support course with the Resuscitation council.

With a strong interest in District Nursing, I pursued my career and began working for Lincolnshire Community Health Services on the bank as a community nurse alongside my job at Newark. When the opportunity of a permanent post came up in 2013, I joined the team covering the local area, including Metheringham, Branston, Washingborough and Heighington. Again my skills as a nurse quickly advanced completing courses in Diabetes management, Ear syringing, catheter management, bowel management and palliative care. My strength and strongest interest was Tissue viability and wound management – and as part of my role was the Link nurse for the team, regularly updating them on changes/advances within this area.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time District Nursing and progressed to Case Manager in my most recent year with them, completing audits, developing presentations and educating care home staff on the basics of wound management.

In January 2022 I joined the team at Church Walk Surgery as a Practice Nurse and hope to bring my previous knowledge to the team and further my skills within practice nursing, currently completing a course with Leicester De Montford University in the Fundamentals of Practice Nursing. My current role within the practice will expand with the skills obtained during this course.
