Public to have a say at NHS Highland annual review

A public question and answer session will be held during the annual review of under-fire NHS Highland in Inverness next month.

The crisis-hit health authority – which is under scrutiny over claims of a culture of bullying – is hosting the review in the Centre for Health Science on February 18, with health secretary Jeane Freeman in attendance.

As part of the annual review there will be a public session between 2-3pm.

The performance of all NHS boards is reviewed by the Scottish Government health department at annual reviews.

They provide an opportunity for members of Highland’s NHS board to highlight the year’s achievements and discuss issues with the cabinet secretary and members of the health department.

The agenda is set by the Scottish Government based on national standards and agreed local performance targets.

NHS Highland chairman David Alston said: “The annual review is a good opportunity for us to celebrate our successes and to also highlight some of the challenges.

“I would be delighted if members of the public took the opportunity to join us for the public session and, if they want, ask a question of NHS Highland or the Scottish Government on the day.”

Earlier this month Iain Stewart, who is originally from Stornoway, was appointed as new chief executive following the retiral of Elaine Meade.

A major part of his new £137,379 role will be to steady the organisation following allegations by whistleblowing staff of a culture of bullying and harassment.

A high-level review into the claims is currently being undertaken by John Sturrock QC.
