Health Secretary Jeane Freeman has appointed three NHS board chairs to vacant posts.
The top jobs in health boards in Orkney, Forth Valley and Ayrshire & Arran have all been filled, just days after an interim head was appointed at NHS Lothian.
Interim chair of NHS Ayrshire & Arran Lesley Bowie has been given the job permanently, while NHS Orkney board member Meghan McEwen has been promoted to the top job.
In Forth Valley, Ms Freeman selected Janie McCusker to the role.
Ms Freeman said the trio will bring “their own skills and experience” to the roles, adding she is confident the boards will “continue to deliver high levels of care for those in the local area”.
On Ms Bowie’s appointment, the Health Secretary said: “I’m pleased to confirm Lesley Bowie as permanent board chair for NHS Ayrshire & Arran, following her appointment as interim chair last month.
“Lesley brings considerable skills and experience to this critical role, with more than six years’ experience on the board and over 30 years’ experience in the IT industry.
Speaking of Ms McEwen, Ms Freeman said the former board member has “valuable skills and experience in governance, outcomes-based planning and community engagement”.
The Health Secretary also praised Ms McCusker, who she deemed to have “extensive leadership experience at national and international levels following 22 years’ service with the Royal Air Force and a term of office with Unicef”.
On Tuesday, Ms Freeman appointed Esther Roberton as interim chair at NHS Lothian after Brian Houston quit citing “irreconcilable differences” with the Health Secretary.
