About Lucy

Lucy is a light of our times: a teacher, a nurturer, a leader and an innovator. In her late twenties and living with a life-shortening illness that means she’s been defying her prognosis for at least a decade, and that she is among some of the most complex patients managed in the community – a trailblazer for those with similar levels of complexity – Lucy is living a life she never thought she’d be able to; not least because she shouldn’t still be here.

She’s an entrepreneur, running Lucy Watts Ltd and also setting up her new business Lived Experience Learning, as well as working for a variety of clients on a self-employed basis. On any one day you may find her providing Independent Advocacy to a client, fighting for their rights to be fulfilled; developing support plans and care packages as an Independent Support Broker; providing consultancy to organisations and businesses to improve their service(s), client support, accessibility, governance or engagement; facilitating co-production groups and research activities; delivering training to health and care professionals; speaking at events and meetings; advising governmental and non-departmental bodies; and more.

Lucy devotes her life to empowering and supporting others, enabling unheard voices to reach decision-making tables, shining a light on those who often have little visibility or understanding, and ensuring people have the support they need to live full and enjoyable lives. She also devotes her life to helping society to improve the lives of people with various forms of “lived experience”, especially people with disabilities, complex health conditions and those needing palliative care. From national work including on transition and on personalised care, to international work on palliative care and universal health coverage, Lucy’s reach is broad – from one-to-one support on an individual basis, up to influencing the Director-General of the World Health Organisation. She also acts as a role model to many – showing that a full and meaningful life is possible, regardless of the barriers people may face.

She’s rarely encountered without her Assistance Dog Molly, a Cocker Spaniel who is as much a workaholic as her owner.

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.
