College vice principal takes NHS post

NHS Shetland has appointed the vice principal of Shetland College and the NAFC Marine Centre to its board.

Andy Glen spent 10 years as an organisational development and training manager at the health board.

NHS Shetland chairman Ian Kinniburgh, said: “Mr Glen is currently working as the Vice Principal for Shetland College UHI and NAFC Marine Centre UHI and has many years’ experience in both senior management and also in education and training.

“Many of you will recall that Mr Glen was our organisational development and training manager for 10 years and therefore has a practical understanding of both the workings of NHS Shetland and also the challenges the board faces. His appointment is for four years until November 2020.

“Mr Glen will replace Daisy Leask who has decided to step down from the board to concentrate on the significant workload arising from her new degree course.”

The part-time position is for one day a week and pays £7,479 per year.
