The Board is responsible for ensuring that the Service meets all of its obligations to patients and staff.
The Board is made up of:
- a Non-Executive Chair
- the Chief Executive
- eight Non-Executive directors including an Employee Director
- two Executive Directors
The Chair 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 would like to attend a board meeting please, contact our Board Secretary at Lindsey.Ralph@nhs.scot.
Interim Board meeting arrangements: Due to the stay-at-home advice and social distancing guidance from the Government, the Board will not convene its meetings in public until further notice. This is to protect the health and wellbeing of anyone who would have otherwise attended the meeting. To register your interest and to receive instructions for joining the meeting via Microsoft Teams, please contact Lindsey.Ralph@nhs.scot. Requests to observe a Board meeting must be received at least 24 hours before the Board meeting is due to start.
