Audit Committee and NHS Western Isles

The Audit Committee has today held another meeting to consider the problems surrounding the Western Isles Health Board. During this session, the so-called Cook Report was considered, together with written submissions by the former Chief Executive of NHS Scotland. The deliberations were in private.

It was decided that no further oral evidence would be taken, and during the next meeting a draft report will be considered - in private.

Although the Health Board staff had requested permission to also be heard by the Committee, they will not be called. I am not unduly worried about that, as I feel that the Audit Committee saw through the evidence presented by Messrs Manson and Currie - the fact that they took their time to remember the Cook Report, and the facts contained in said Cook Report (which I do not know) will probably speak for themselves.
