Board Members

NHS Orkney Structure

NHS Orkney consists of nine Non-Executive members and five Executive members.

The Non-Executive members are lay-people who are invited to sit on the Board. These people generally have other jobs but they receive some remuneration for activities involving their Health Board duties.

The Executive Members are all senior managers and therefore employees of NHS Orkney.

You can contact any member of the Board by writing or telephoning. Contact details are at the bottom of the page.
