NHS SHETLAND and the council’s joint director of community health and social care Simon Bokor-Ingram is moving to Moray where he will be in charge of the wellbeing of a much larger population.

Bokor Ingram will be leaving NHS Shetland on 17 April to start his new job as the interim chief officer for the Moray health and social care partnership at some later date. He is taking on the post through a year’s secondment.

The Moray integration joint board is responsible for a population of around 100,000.

NHS Shetland chief executive Michael Dickson said: “We would like to take this opportunity to formally congratulate Simon and also thank him for his constant dedication to NHS Shetland in the last 12 years, and since 2014, also to Shetland Islands Council.”

His deputy Josephine Robinson has been appointed interim director for Shetland for the immediate future.

Bokor-Ingram said he was delighted to have this opportunity. He added: “Robust management arrangements have been put in place in Shetland to allow me to make this transition during a particularly challenging time for health and care services.

“As part of the North of Scotland Regional Partnership working arrangements, these moves put in place the capacity needed to ensure that progress continues to provide the best possible care for all our residents.”
