We are pleased to announce the appointment of our new Panel member for Scotland, Amanda Britain. Amanda takes on the role following Mairi Macleod’s completion of her term.

She is currently supporting Scotland’s national Technology Enabled Care Programme, is an advisor with Life Changes Trust dementia programme, and an associate with Healthcare Improvement Scotland.

In 2012, Amanda was appointed a Board Member of the Chartered Institute of Housing in Scotland, and in 2016 was elected Chair.  She is Vice Chair of Iriss, a charitable company that aims to build the capacity and capability of the social services workforce in Scotland, and a member of Alzheimer Scotland’s Human Rights and Public Policy Committee.

In parallel, Amanda has chaired the Peter Gibson Memorial Fund, which in September 2016 published Championing Consumers, a history of consumer advocacy in Scotland 1974-2014.
