Geraldine Granath

I have lived in a small village west of Durham for nearly 30 years and was brought up in Houghton-le-Spring.  I left the area to attend university and returned to do research at Durham.

I am retired from the NHS after 20 years working in a number of roles including Community Health Council Chief Executive, Tyne and Wear Health Action Zone co-ordinator and Head of Education. I spent two years seconded to the Department of Health on projects developing the workforce in Primary Care, extending nursing roles and bringing more GPs into areas where there was a shortage.

Prior to joining the NHS I worked for SCOPE, Age Concern and Durham County Council.

Currently I am a Foundation Trust member for County Durham and Darlington FT and a Governor at Derwentside College.  I am a campaigner for the British Heart Foundation, a self-care champion and support the “know your pulse” initiative of the Atrial Fibrillation Association.

I am immensely proud of our area and the people and volunteer for a number of heritage projects.  My other love is music and I am a member of local choirs and play my harp whenever the opportunity arises.

Experience as a carer, worker and health service user have shown the importance of NEAS to the local area and I would like to thank the members who have trusted me to fulfil the role of NEAS Governor.
