Senior Legal Claims Adviser.
Alan Scott-Davies started his working career by joining the Royal Air Force in 1975. He served for 10 years and completed tours in Germany, Northern Ireland, Cyprus, Hong Kong and numerous other military units within the UK.
After leaving the RAF he joined the Somerset Ambulance Service spending 5 years working on the 999 emergency service unit at Ilminster Station in Somerset. In 1990 he moved to join the Norfolk Ambulance Service and quickly gained promotion to Leading Ambulanceman whilst training as a Paramedic.
Alan left the ambulance service in 1993, following an injury at work, and secured a place at Earlham Hall School of Law [University of East Anglia] to study for his law degree. His background in both the military and the ambulance service led him to take a special interest in medical, personal injury, military and aviation law. After graduating in 1996 he returned to work in the NHS as a Practice Manager working at two large GP Practices in Norfolk. He spent over 20 years working in the NHS becoming an Executive Member of the West Norfolk Primary Care Group. He has also lectured widely across the UK on the subjects of medical negligence and the NHS Complaints System to audiences of GPs, hospital consultants, Practice and Community Nurses, Paramedics and Administrative Support Staff.
Alan joined Harris Fowler Solicitors in 2007 and has a very important role. For sometime he has led the vetting team that makes the initial assessment for every potential claim that is considered by the firm which includes personal injury, clinical and professional negligence claims. He has a particular interest in aviation law and assisting members of the Armed Forces for both civil law and claims under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.
Alan has been a qualified helicopter pilot since 1999 and was trained by two former RAF Search & Rescue Helicopter Pilots at Norwich airport in Norfolk. He flies regularly from the former WWII base at Dunkeswell in Devon.
