Lucy Gilbert

Neurodiverse Connection

Lucy started her career in academia before moving into the NHS. She has held national roles in Quality Improvement, and Trust leadership positions in Innovation. She now relishes the opportunity to combine her NHS leadership experience with insights from her lived experience of mental health challenges to facilitate reflection and create change.

Lucy is passionate about the power of neuroaffirming care and improving outcomes for Autistic people through increasing understanding of neurodivergent differences. She is also a Trainer on the National Autism Trainer Programme.

As a late discovered autistic parent, Lucy is especially interested in masking and camouflaging, and understanding the impact of autism during the perinatal period and transition into parenthood.

Outside of work, Lucy continues to enjoy discovering her authentic autistic self, perusing charity shops for bargains, and cherishing downtime with her young family.
