Dr Lucy Williams
Council Member



Term of office on Council

March 2016 to present


Great Western Hospital, Swindon


Dr Lucy Williams qualified in 1990 from Newcastle University. Her anaesthetic training was in the South West but curtailed by family commitments. Since 2001 she has worked in SAS posts and started work in her current job in 2007. Lucy's work is divided between anaesthesia and pain medicine and I am currently clinical lead for pain services in my hospital. Since September 2018, she has been the SAS Tutor for The Great Western Hospital, with responsibility for  supporting the professional development of approximately 55 colleagues. Lucy joined the College SAS Committee two years before being elected to Council. She has been the SAS representative on the Training Committee since then and have been involved in developing the new curriculum. Other areas of responsibility include Chair of the Finance and Resources Board.

Lucy led the creation of the College’s first Sustainability Strategy, working with Dr Tom Pierce (Environmental Advisor to the President), other Council members, and RCoA staff. She and Dr Pierce are co-opted members of the Association of Anaesthetists Environment and Sustainability Committee. This is a cross-specialty collaboration to promote more sustainable anaesthetic practice. This has been well received by members and there is an appetite to learn how to practise anaesthesia in a way that gives excellent patient care whilst minimising environmental impact.

Outside work she enjoys singing, gardening, food and books. Lucy is an active member of her village church and Trustee for a local charity.
