It was announced today that applications are now open to appoint a new Chair of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to replace John Brown, the current incumbent of that post.
The job advert has come while a public inquiry is going on into recent events at the showpiece Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, which is part of the Health Board estate.
The inquiry before Lord Brodie has been postponed temporarily while Police Scotland carry out additional investigations there.
There have been frequent calls for Mr Brown’s resignation over the past two years from Anas Sarwar, the Scottish Labour leader, and his deputy, Dame Jackie Baillie, who is also the MSP for Dumbarton constituency, which includes Helensburgh, the Lochside and Lomond.
The wording of the advertisement for Mr Brown’s prestigious post is as follows:
