We are pleased to introduce the new Chief Executive of BASICS Scotland Lucy Aitchison. She is taking over the reins of the organisation from Prof. Colville Laird, who is retiring at Christmas. Lucy comes from a background of over 20-years work in charity leadership and management, the majority of which has been in health-related charities.
Lucy said “I am delighted to be part of the BASICS team, and I look forward to helping ensure the fantastic work continues. I’d like to pay tribute to Colville and the incredible journey he has taken BASICS Scotland and other stakeholders on, to improve the field of pre-hospital emergency care. As well as the great staff team, I’d like to acknowledge the importance of all the volunteers who give their time and expertise to BASICS Scotland. Whether as a Responder, Course Instructor or Board Member I am truly humbled by the commitment everyone is willing to give. My thanks to you all – and wishing everyone a happy and healthy Christmas!”
