Executive Medical Director, Silverchain

Dr Helena Williams

Helena is a specialist general practitioner of 30+ years’ clinical experience, with extensive corporate and clinical governance experience.

She is currently the Executive Medical Director for the Silverchain Group, a Board Director for both the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (for which she also chairs the national Primary Care Committee), and Deputy Chair on the Board of the Barossa Hills Fleurieu Local Health Network – which delivers all of acute/primary/community/ aged and NDIS services.

Helena is passionate about inter-disciplinary, consumer-centred team care, and trauma-informed, compassionate leadership.

The reality of turning 60 next year and having lost several friends and family in recent years (especially with non- malignant diseases) has made her increasingly interested in palliative care in the second half of life.
