Dr Liz Robertson

Non-Executive Board Member of NHS Education for Scotland

Dr Liz Robertson was a consultant radiologist at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary from 1982 to 2011 having spent time as a junior doctor in London.  Her consultant career commenced with the installation of the first Body CT Scanner in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and evolved with the ever expanding specialty of Imaging.  Service Change was a constant companion throughout her career.

She spent some time as Clinical Director in Radiology and found an interest in medical management.  She was, for the last 10 years of her consultant’s role, and Associated Medical Director in NHS Grampian most recently with responsibility for clinical leadership for Clinical Governance in the Acute Sector.

Her professional interests included Clinical Governance, Patient Safety and Clinical leadership. She was involved with large national service change projects including the Diagnostic Collaborative and the Scottish Patient Safety Programme.  She was interested in appropriate role development in the context of clinical governance, training and education.  She is pleased to have a Non Executive role on the NES Board recognising that, as the NHS service transforms to be fit for future purpose, there will be challenges in ensuring workforce, training, skills and knowledge are matched to service and patient need.

Away from work, her mission is to keep the house up and the garden down.  She enjoys escaping on small travel adventures.  Whilst at home, she enjoys cooking.  Opera and art galleries are great pulls in an observer capacity
