Dr Carey Lunan
Dr Carey Lunan is the Chair of the Scottish Project and is a GP partner in one of Scotland’s most socio-economically deprived communities. She has campaigned for many years to raise awareness around persisting health inequalities, and the crucial and unique role of general practice to work in partnership with patients and other professionals to address this, through relationships of continuity, trust, community engagement and advocacy.
She has also been involved in national work over many years to improve the primary-secondary care interface, practitioner wellbeing, and mental health provision within practices. She believes a strong primary care system, and the generalist role, is key to a future sustainable NHS. In 2020, she was awarded an MBE for services to healthcare during the Covid19 pandemic.
