Our Board

Chief Executive and Chair

The Board is responsible for ensuring that the Scottish Ambulance Service meets all of its obligations to patients and staff.

The Board is made up of:

  • a non-executive chairman
  • the chief executive
  • eight non-executive directors including an employee director

The chairman and non-executive directors are appointed by the Scottish Government through the Commissioner for Public Appointments. The chief executive and other executive directors are appointed through a process of public advertising and formal interview.

Board meetings take place every two months and are conducted in public. Members of the public can attend these meetings and observe proceedings. If you want to attend a board meeting and have any special requirements, contact Lindsey Ralph, Board Secretary

Details of dates and venues for board meetings are published in advance of the meeting and papers are available for download from the Board Papers section.
