Lindsay Oliver is National Director of Year of Care Partnerships. Prior to her role as National Director she worked both in primary and specialist care settings latterly as the first nationally appointed Consultant Dietitian in Diabetes.

Her interest in communication skills and person centred care developed from an opportunity early in her career where she was privileged to be trained, mentored and supervised as part of a Diabetes UK funded programme seeking to develop psychologically informed approaches within the Diabetes workforce.

She was also central to the design, development, research and roll out of the DAFNE and DESMOND diabetes patient education programmes, developing training and peer review processes for the roll out and quality assurance of these programmes.

She has 15 years of experience in supporting organisations to plan and implement care and support planning and is a recognised expert in the field, delivering the prestigious Janet Kinson lecture at Diabetes UK Annual Professional Conference in 2017, entitled “Whose Diabetes is it anyway?”.

Lindsay has been involved in all aspects of personalised care with activities including the delivery of training and mentorship to primary care teams, advising Scottish Government on care and support planning and developing national policies within the NHS.

She is an RCGP Champion for Person Centred Care.
