Cllr Samantha Mearns

 I was nominated as Stakeholder Governor this year following my election to Harrogate Borough Council in May 2018.  A qualified solicitor, I worked most latterly as the Practice Manager of Stockwell Road Surgery in Knaresborough.  Already I am finding my primary care experience invaluable to the role of Governor, as it enables me to see the bigger health picture, understand the competing priorities for funding and the challenges facing local healthcare in a joined up way.
