Reform of Adults with Incapacity Law in Scotland: Understanding and shaping what is coming next
Director, EX-PG Ltd (and former Public Guardian for Scotland)
Sandra holds qualifications in law, nursing and public sector management. Sandra worked as a Sister on an Intensive Care Unit, before ‘crossing sides’ to NHS management. Sandra managed various NHS services before undertaking and successfully completing a law degree. On graduating Sandra became an in house legal advisor to an NHS Trust. This somewhat unusual combination of experiences and qualifications were invaluable in her role as Public Guardian.
For 14 years (2004-2018) Sandra was the Public Guardian for Scotland. The Public Guardian supports as well as supervises those appointed, under the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000, to administer the affairs of persons with incapacity. She holds qualifications in law, public sector management and nursing. She led a team of 80, delivering a service across the whole of Scotland.
Sandra offers mental capacity/incapacity advice and training, drawing on the breadth and wealth of her experience as Public Guardian. All advice and training is tailored to client's needs and is specifically designed to assist both those supporting, as well as those developing and delivering services for, people with incapacity.
