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.   

Ms Brown and Mr Moore have had no political activity within the last five years.


The NHS Golden Jubilee is unique within the NHS. A national institution, independently run by its own NHS Board, the NHS Golden Jubilee is helping to re-define the concept of the public hospital to  “Deliver care through collaboration” for NHS Scotland. 

The NHS Golden Jubilee family includes:

  • Golden Jubilee National Hospital,
  • NHS Scotland Academy,
  • National Centre for Sustainable Delivery,
  • Golden Jubilee Research Institute, and
  • Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel.

* The NHS National Waiting Times Centre continues to be the legal name for the Board.
