Roy Lilley – NHS Writer, Broadcaster, commentator and conference speaker
Over 50 years ago Roy Lilley started his first enterprise from scratch, built it into a multi-million turn-over business and sold it to fellow directors and managers, in 1989. He has chaired everything from major boards, to hospitals, health authorities, voluntary organisations and charities.
He has been a policy advisor, a visiting fellow at Imperial College London, helped start the Health services Management school at Nottingham University and was a founder of the Federation of NHS Trusts… that became the Confed. In local government; for over 20 years a councillor, chaired all the major committees, became the leader of the Council and Mayor of Surrey Heath Borough Council.
He is the Founder of the Academy of Fabulous Stuff, the only free-to-access repository of best practice in the NHS, the developer of the Fab-O-Meter, a way for measuring morale in organisations, in real time, and for over ten years has written a discontinuous eLetter that, often, over three times a week, reaches the inboxes of 300,000 health and care managers in the UK and overseas. He visits over 20 NHS establishments a year and travels the UK and world-wide talking about healthcare, management and policy. Three times voted the top speaker on NHS topics.
He says; ‘Healthcare is my interest, my challenge, my passion and I am lucky to be involved with the professionals who make our lives healthier, our families safer and each of us proud of what we do.'
