Health PA’s Co-Founder/CEO

Lochlann Scott: 

Lochlann is the co-founder and CEO of Health PA, the reason why he has developed Health PA and why he founded his social enterprise Helplink Support Services (helplink.ie) is because he believes that people need to be connected to their health and their health providers in a more accessible way and also that we all need to have control of our own health data. He is a graduate of NUI Galway with post graduate degrees from Open University and University of Ulster in the fields of Psychology and Health Psychology.

Lochlann spent many years in the Health Service Executive; where he worked as a social care in both residential units and within the social work department. In 2011, Lochlann utilised the many skills he had developed over the years through his education and his work in the retail/health sectors to create the non-profit Mental Health and Conflict Resolution organisation Helplink Support Services  (www.helplink.ie).

Furthermore, over the past five years he has also developed many innovative and useful digital health applications such as healthdirectory.ie – over 180,000 people have already used this application and the number continues to  grow on a daily basis. Healthdirectory.ie provides an easy-to-use directory of health services(both public and private) from across the island of Ireland (>5000 services available). He is also the Co-Founder of the Galway Chapter of the international organisation Health 2.0 and has developed.
