To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on the board of NHS Grampian considering setting up an international office to offset the effects of its reported staffing problems.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 26 February 2019
The Scottish Government is supportive of the innovative approach being developed by NHS Grampian to set up an international health office to provide support and guidance for staff who choose to get involved in global citizenship. These plans are aligned to the aims of the NHS Scotland Global Citizenship Programme, which is a key part of the delivery of the Scottish Government’s International Development Strategy.
