LMC Executive

Joint Chief Executive Officers:

Mel Benfell

Prior to joining the NHS, to manage two Norfolk GP  out of hours co-operatives, I had a career in retail office management.  I then worked for Norfolk PCT in the Primary Care Directorate where my role focused on clinical governance. In 2004 I became a Practice Manager in Norwich, where I worked for 11 years, before joining the LMC.

Naomi Woodhouse

Having family members in the profession I have always had an interest in general practice.   Having completed my degree in Business    Management, specialising in Economics and Law, I worked in a South Norfolk practice providing support on Enhanced Services, QOF, and read coding before joining the LMC in 2008.


Executive Officer: Joni Graham

Having worked within the NHS for 17 years I have obtained a breadth of knowledge and experience. Starting out at a large hospital trust I went on to work at a London PCT before spending 12 years  as a Practice Manager. I was Business Manager at a multi-site South Norfolk dispensing practice for 5 years before joining the LMC in 2020.


Executive Officer: Nicky Watson

Before joining the LMC in 2021 I worked in the NHS for 26 years, 14 as a Practice Manager in Dorset, and more recently Norfolk, where I actively supported PCN peers with locality wide schemes. I previously worked with a local LMC as a locality PM Representative, which enhanced my understanding of the role of LMCs in supporting their constituents.


Support Officer:  Jessica Dawson

I studied for a degree in Business and Human Resource Management and spent 4 years working in recruitment for both the construction and office support industries. I completed my AMSPAR qualification in 2008 and joined a Waveney practice as a Practice Administrator before joining the LMC in 2012.
