Alison recently retired as headteacher of a school in South Somerset, having been a teacher in Somerset and Dorset. She joined the Somerset Association of Primary Headteachers, serving on its executive and becoming its Chair. Alison joined the Somerset Compact Executive, a partnership between schools, early years settings, governors and the local authority, working to direct services for the benefit of all Somerset’s children and young people.

With an interest in South Somerset and the future of the health service, Alison would like to use some of this experience to support the important work of Yeovil Hospital.
