West of Scotland Branch News

From Robert McLaughlin

The West of Scotland Branch would like to thank the Northern Ireland Branch for a great Leadership & Development Forum and Branch Members took part in all activities. In particular, some Members had an ‘Alternative Titanic Experience’ on the escalator – those involved know what we mean.

Prior to the Branch Dinner, we also celebrated the ‘S & S’ event of Stuart McDowell retiring and Stewart McKenzie being appointed National Chair. The refreshments for the event were transferred to the hotel in unusual carrier bags – a Tesco trolley!

Since then we have had a Branch meeting at University Hospital Ayr, hosted by award-winning Nicola McIvor. The meeting discussed the many topical events that are occurring within NHS Scotland and in the UK, together with planning for next year’s events.
