About Pat Carragher - Children's Hospices Across Scotland

After nearly 40 years of practicing as a doctor and 26 years working for CHAS, Dr Pat is retiring as Medical Director in summer 2022. In this time, Dr Pat has helped children with life-shortening conditions and their families across the whole of Scotland, ensuring that no one faces the death of their child alone. Dr Pat has been instrumental in leading in the changes to CHAS’s medical service provisions, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic; helping evolve and revolutionise the way in which we deliver care, ensuring we reach every child and family in Scotland that needs our help.
