About Lucy

Lucy is a prominent patient advocate, disability activist, consultant, speaker and social entrepreneur. She is committed to using her time, energy and skills to make an impact in society and to improve the lives of others. Lucy is an accomplished individual, providing her support to many causes, roles, projects and individuals, is in paid employment, and received an MBE at the tender age of 22 for her voluntary work.

Lucy runs her own business, providing Independent Advocacy and care package brokerage to disabled and chronically ill individuals and their families, commissioned by CCGs, Local Authorities and patients/carers themselves. She works for Festival Spirit, who provide accessible accommodation at festivals, doing admin, marketing and other tasks. Further to this, Lucy is a sought-after public speaker, including TEDx, and provides consultancy, training, workshops and digital marketing.

Lucy is based in Essex and is supported by her mother, her Assistance Dog and a team of registered nurses and carers that she manages herself via a Personal Health Budget. She lives with a life-limiting condition and very complex medical needs, is physically disabled and has far exceeded all her prognoses, but is determined to live a life worth living, and to make a difference.

Independent Advocacy

I offer Independent Advocacy to individuals with complex health needs, disabilities, long-term conditions and other needs or impairments, as well as to parents/families.

My particular areas of expertise are in the following areas:

  • NHS Continuing Healthcare (NHS CHC)
  • NHS Children’s Continuing Care (NHS CC)
  • Personal Health Budgets
  • Care Act Advocacy
  • NHS Complaints and Appeals
  • General Healthcare/Patient Advocacy
  • Adult Advocacy
  • Advocacy to Support The Transition to Adulthood
  • Benefits-Related Advocacy and Support
  • Education, Health and Care Plans where complex medical needs are the main issue.

Care Package Brokerage

I offer Personal Health Budget (PHB) Brokerage to support clients through the NHS Continuing Healthcare (NHS CHC) and PHB process and/or to support reviews and reconfiguring of the package to meet changing needs. This is a paid service that can be commissioned by the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) – or a local authority in the case of joint funding – or purchased privately or from an existing care package if the CCG are unable to commission my services directly.

I support the individual through the process, work with them and the CCG and their professionals to develop the personalised care and support plan, including sourcing providers, training and costing up the support. This is then submitted to the CCG. I can also help with early recruitment once the package is signed off.

This is done almost completely remotely unless the client is within travelling distance, with everything conducted via video and phone calls, emails and messages.

“The only recognition I seek is that, when I come to the end of my life, I hand on heart know that I made a difference and contributed to society.

I also want people to look upon my life as

A life well lived.”
