Management team

Mrs Linda Johnston DCR-R, CMS, PG Cert CT
Practice Manager

Having qualified as a radiographer in Leicester in 1989, I worked in three hospital X-ray departments over a 10 year period before joining a medical equipment company as an Application Specialist. I returned to the NHS in 2003 and worked for the Ipswich Primary Care Trust and, then, the West Anglia Cancer Network in Cambridge before taking a post as Project Manager in the IT Department at the West Suffolk Hospital in 2004. I joined The Guildhall Surgery as Practice Manager in June 2009. Outside work my interests include walking, family cycle rides and travel.

Mrs Rebecca Hallas 
Assistant Practice Manager

After many years of working within the insurance industry in a number of management roles, I  achieved my CIPD higher diploma at the Suffolk New College in 2012, and moved into health in justice. My role was primarily working within Mental health services.  I joined the Guildhall and Barrow Surgery as assistant practice manager in 2016. Outside of work my interests include sports, spending time with my family and holidays.








Mrs Aimee Longfoot 
Patient services manager 

For 13 years I worked within the travel industry in a variety of roles, from sales to management, always taking great pride in delivering, and encouraging others to provide, exemplary customer service. Then in 2015 I joined the NHS, and brought my passion for meeting the needs of the general public to the Guildhall & Barrow Surgery. Outside of work I enjoy reading, puzzles, spending time with my children, and baking celebration cakes.









Mrs Nicola Biela
Dispensary Manager

Educated at King Edward VI School, Bury St. Edmunds, I joined The Guildhall Surgery in 1984 as a receptionist and trained as a dispenser in 2000. I gained my BTec in dispensing from Nottingham University and was appointed dispensary manager in December 2005. Outside work my interests include travel, historical architecture and bee keeping.
