Elaine Korab
Business Manager

I have worked for the practice since 2007 and focus my time on ensuring the practice is sustainable staff-wise (clinical and non-clinical) as well as financially. The government set many hoops to jump through and part of my role is to ensure we deliver on the targets. I lead on Quality Improvement, working with the entire Vine team, implementing new and more effective ways to deliver our services to patients, whether that is face to face, using IT or by telephone. All enhancement suggestions are always welcome. My only brush with the "rich and famous" is that I used to serve fish & chips to "Rodney & Del Boy" in my teenage years!

Julie Meakin
Practice Manager

I joined Waterbrook Medical Practice in 2009 as the Deputy Practice Manager prior to the merges with Forest End Surgery and Stakes Lodge Surgery to form Vine Medical Group. I came from a commercial and public services background with little knowledge of the NHS so learnt primary care very quickly! I am now the HR lead, the Patient Group Link, schedule monthly all-practice training sessions and community team meetings as well as supporting Dr Pickup with information governance updates and queries. My claim to fame is that I once made flapjacks for Ellen McArthur to take on her round-the-world voyage! In my spare time I enjoy healthy eating, knitting and fitness, although not all at the same time!

Amanda Macnally RGN (1985) Diplomas in Asthma, COPD, Triage, Family planning, Paediatric asthma, Physical examination and Prescribing
Senior Practice Nurse

Having grown up in Portsmouth, I trained as a nurse at St Thomas' Hospital, London. On returning to the South Coast I developed my early career on surgical wards, and then progressed to a senior post as Ward Sister. I became a Practice Nurse in 1993, and further developed my primary care skills, knowledge and experience within at the practices that have now evolved into Vine Medical Group. My professional career has evolved into specialist roles in adult/paediatric asthma, COPD, minor illness and family planning. More recently I have completed a post-graduate course to become a non-medical prescriber. 25 years and two grown-up children later, I am looking forward to an exciting future with VMG, working closely with the dedicated healthcare team to deliver fantastic care to our patients.

I qualified as a nurse from the University of Surrey in 2005 and started my professional career as a staff nurse in acute medicine. My professional career has benefited from a diverse range of clinical experiences/positions including posts in palliative care, health promotion and the 'out of hours' community team. Prior to joining Vine Medical Group, I was a senior member of the Infection Control team at Solent NHS Trust where I started my master's degree pathway. My broad clinical experience and continued professional development, such as the Diabetes Certificate from Warwick University, have enabled my current position as a Practice Nurse at VMG.

Fiona Hedley

I gained my professional nursing qualifications in Portsmouth and subsequently started my career on the wards as a surgical staff nurse.
