Cabinet Secretary for Health, Wellbeing and Cities Strategy, Nicola Sturgeon, today announced the reappointment of a Member to Shetland NHS Board.
The member is:
Mr Keith Massey – he has served as a Royal Navy officer and also held a number of management roles within different industries including deputy Power Station Manager in Lerwick before commencing an international management career with a Biotech company where he specialised as a strategic risk management consultant. Mr Massey now runs his own hotel business in Shetland and has served as Vice Chair of the Health Board for the past 2 years. He does not hold any other ministerial appointments.
This reappointment will be for four years and will run from June 1, 2012 to May 31, 2016.
This post is part-time and attracts a remuneration of £7,332 for a time commitment of eight hours per month.
Shetland NHS Board is responsible for the strategic planning of health services and the development of measures to improve the health of the community in the Shetland region.
This re-appointment was made in partial accordance with the Public Appointments Commissioner for Scotland's Revised Code of Practice for Ministerial Appointments to Public Bodies in Scotland. This re-appointment met the Code requirements with the exception of paragraphs two and three of the code which deal with Succession Planning.
All appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process. However, in accordance with the original Nolan recommendations, there is a requirement for appointees’ political activity within the last five years (if there is any to be declared) to be made public. Mr Massey has had no political activity in the last five years.
