Health board chairman stands down

NHS DUMFRIES and Galloway chairman Nick Morris is to step down from his role in July after five years at the helm.

He started in the post in January 2019, bringing with him 33 years’ of experience in health and social care.

Speaking as he prepares to resign the role, Mr Morris said: “I am honoured to have held the position of chairman of NHS Dumfries and Galloway for more than five years, during what has proved to be one of the most challenging periods for the NHS since its formation in 1948.

“During this time, and the world-changing effects of Covid-19, I have been so impressed by the dedication and professionalism of the incredibly hardworking staff within this organisation.

“The quality of the people who deliver healthcare services within our region, their skills and knowledge, is second to none, and deserves fullest recognition.

“I’m incredibly proud to have been a part of this work. While NHS Dumfries and Galloway still faces significant challenges over coming years, it’s the outstanding people working right across this organisation who give me confidence in its ability to meet these challenges, and to continue to deliver important services for the benefit of everyone within our region.”

A process will now be put in place to identify a new chair for the board.
