Stephen Riley pleaded guilty to a charge of theft, relating to money stolen from the Hollies Medical Centre in Nether Edge, during a hearing held at Sheffield Crown Court today.
Riley stole the money from the GP surgery, based on St Andrew’s Road, between July 2005 and February 2014.
Ian Goldsack, defending, said his client was ‘facing a prison sentence’ and asked for the sentencing hearing to be adjourned to allow for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

Judge Michael Slater adjourned the case until November 22 and said he believed the sentencing judge would be ‘assisted’ by such a report.
He released Riley, of Clarke Avenue, Rotherham, on unconditional bail, and told him: “The fact I’m adjourning for a report and extending your unconditional bail does not indicate the type of sentence you will receive.
“All options will be open to the sentencing judge.”
