Interests

Good morning, colleagues, and welcome to the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee’s first meeting in session 6. I am the MSP for Kirkcaldy. As the oldest member of the committee, I have the pleasure of convening this meeting for the first two items of business. I welcome all members, and I look forward to working with you on the committee.

I remind everyone present to switch their mobile phones to silent mode. No apologies have been received.

The first agenda item is for each of us to declare any interests that we have that are relevant to the committee’s work. Background information has been provided in paper 1, which is the declaration of interests paper.

I have no relevant interests to declare. I invite each committee member to declare any relevant interests. We will start with Stephanie Callaghan.

I will come back to Stephanie. Does Sandesh Gulhane have any interests to declare?

Yes, I have a number of interests to declare. I am a practising doctor, working in general practice and in hospital. I am a member of the British Medical Association, the Royal College of General Practitioners, the Royal College of Surgeons and the Medical and Dental Defence Union of Scotland, and I have spoken on lots of health topics across BBC television and radio and on STV.

I remain a registered nurse and am a member of NHS Dumfries and Galloway’s vaccination team. I will continue to be available as and if required to support further Covid vaccinations in the upcoming months, and I will update my entry in the register of interests as necessary to declare any income that is derived when that occurs.

I have no relevant interests to declare.
