Hilary Scott

Hilary Scott has more than 30 years’ experience of working in health and other public services at local, regional and national levels.

She followed several years as an NHS chief executive with appointments as the Deputy Health Service Ombudsman and at the Department of Health – where she worked on the programme to reform the complaints and clinical negligence procedures.

Hilary has been an independent consultant for over 15 years. She has completed many investigations and reviews in public sector organisations, working mostly as an independent investigator but sometimes as an advocate. She also works with organisations who want to improve the way they respond when things go wrong.

Hilary has been a member of the AvMA board since 2011. She wanted to contribute her experience to an organisation that both helps individuals and influences national policies. She says that’s what keeps her involved.

Hilary takes a keen interest in the health service in Wales, having lived in North Wales for some years. She has pursued health service matters both as a member of her local community health council and as a resident.
