Chief quits islands health board

NHS Western Isles has lost another senior official.

The health board said its acting chief executive, John Turner, has been appointed to the top job with NHS24.

News of his move comes less than a week after Laurence Irvine, who was a chief executive suspended on full pay, was dismissed following a hearing.

The running of NHS Western Isles was severely criticised by MSPs sitting on the Scottish Parliament's audit committee in May.
