Susan Blakemore

Chief Executive CHoC

Susan began her career as a midwife and subsequently took on a Primary Care Development Manager role working with the evolution of Primary Care Groups and Primary Care Trusts in Cumbria. During this period she worked successfully towards an MBA which she completed in 2001.

Susan subsequently worked in a number of Primary Care settings, moving into the world of Out of Hours in 2002 where her initial responsibilities involved reshaping the out of hours service and ensuring a strong clinical mix. In 2009 the merger of CueDoc – Cumbria Emergency Doctors on Call – and Baycall, the out of hours service covering the South Lakes and Furness localities, created Cumbria Health on Call to which Susan was appointed Chief Executive. As Cumbria Health on Call moves into the future, Susan is keen to develop services 24/7 with CHoC becoming a key central point of contact for Cumbrian patients.
