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 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 twelve years now. She has lots of experience of 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 is the member of the AvMA board with a brief for the health service in Wales, having moved from London to North Wales in 2007. She has pursued health service matters both as a member of her local community health council and as a resident. Mae hi wedi bod yn dysgu siarad Cymraeg am dair blynedd – she has been learning to speak Welsh for three years!
