Remuneration and related undertaking:
Prior to becoming an MSP in May 2016 I was a Band 6 Clinical (Nurse) Educator at NHS Dumfries and Galloway (of Bankend Road, Dumfries, DG1 4EP). At the end of May 2016 I received a final salary of £1,900. In order to contribute to the requirements to retain my nursing license, I completed four nursing shifts as a Band 5 Staff Nurse as part of the Nurse Bank in July 2016. I received remuneration of between £501 and £1,000 for these shifts. [Amended interest 24 May 2017]


I am the proprietor, jointly with my husband, of the Ferintosh Guest House (of 30 Lovers Walk, Dumfries, DG1 1LX). I receive remuneration of between £2,001 and £3,000 per annum. I do not undertake any paid work for the guest house; it is managed by my husband with support from one part-time employee.


I am a member of the Royal College of Nursing.
