Dr Veronica Devlin initially trained as a GP in Glasgow, working in emergency medicine for more than 20 years. In 2005 she became involved in the improvement of clinical services. Helping to set up the first ambulatory care unit in Scotland, she got involved in several national improvement programs.  

A change of direction led to Dr Devlin becoming the National Clinical Lead for Emergency Care Pathways for NHS Scotland. Following this she moved to healthcare consulting with GE Healthcare as Medical Director for EMEA, involved in large scale transformation projects and technology-enabled change, and after five years Dr Devlin returned to the NHS in her current role at MFT.
