Ms Susan Douglas-Scott
Non-Executive Board Member of NHS Education for Scotland
Susan stepped down as the Chief Executive of the Long Term Conditions Alliance for Scotland (LTCAS) in May 2010. She continues her involvement with LTCAS as an external consultant. As a founding LTCAS Board member and as its first Chief Executive, Susan was pivotal in developing the organisation to where it is today. Her previous voluntary sector roles include Chief Executive of Epilepsy Scotland, Chief Executive of PHACE (Promoting Health and Challenging Exclusion) Scotland, Director of FPA (Family Planning Association) Scotland and Head of Services for Sense Scotland.
Before this, Susan enjoyed a 16 year career within local authorities, initially as an occupational therapist. Susan's professional experience in the disability and equalities field, along with her personal experience as a disabled woman, has given her the opportunity to develop her thoughts on disability and the impact of long term conditions on the individual and society. She is committed to continuing to challenge services to ensure all people are supported to live well.
