S5W-14769: Alex Cole-Hamilton (Edinburgh Western)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 20 February 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how many consultant medical staff in each NHS board are currently suspended, broken down by length of time that they have been suspended for. 

Answered by: Shona Robison 6 March 2018

This information is not held centrally.

The management of Employee Conduct PIN Policy sets out the rights and responsibilities of boards, managers, employees and trade unionists/professional organisations in respect of employees who are subject to any disciplinary action and includes guidance on the suspension of staff. Decisions relating to disciplinary actions and how any related statistics are collated is a matter for each individual health board within the framework of their conduct policies and procedures.
