Political activity

All appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process.  However, in accordance with the original Nolan recommendations, there is a requirement for appointees’ political activity within the last five years (if there is any to be declared) to be made public.   

Mr Morris has had no political activity within the last five years.


NHS Fife is one of 14 territorial NHS Boards in Scotland. The organisation provides healthcare to a population of more than 370,000 and currently employs around 8,500 staff. As a large, rural area, with varied geography and several centres of population, there are particular challenges to meeting the health needs of the people of Fife. To address these challenges, NHS Fife is working to improve health services with the involvement and support of a variety of partners, including Fife Council, Fife Health and Social Care Partnership, other health boards in Scotland, the voluntary and independent sector, and most importantly, the public.
