Health and Sport Committee 21 November 2017

Agenda: Interests, Deputy Convener, NHS Governance



Good morning and welcome to the 27th meeting of the Health and Sport Committee in 2017.

I ask everyone to ensure that mobile phones are switched off or on silent. It is acceptable to use mobile devices for social media, but do not take photographs or record proceedings.

We have received apologies from Sandra White. I welcome Ash Denholm and Emma Harper to the committee.

The first item is for Ash Denholm and Emma Harper to make a declaration of interests. In accordance with section 3 of the code of conduct, any interests that are relevant to the remit of the committee have to be declared. Any declaration should be brief but sufficiently detailed to make clear to a listener the nature of the interest.

I have no relevant interests to declare.

I have relevant interests to declare; I am a registered nurse, currently not practising, and I am a former employee of NHS Dumfries and Galloway. I am seeking opportunities to volunteer to maintain my licence.

Thank you very much. I put on the record our thanks to Maree Todd, Tom Arthur and Clare Haughey for their work while they were members of the committee.
