NHS Highland's annual review will be held in Inverness next week with Scotland's minister for public health and women's health Jenni Minto in attendance.

The NHS Highland annual review, which the public can go to, will be held on September 29, from 2pm-3pm at the Centre for Health Science in Inverness.

A question and answer session will be held, however those attending the public session online via Microsoft Teams, will not be able to ask questions to the panel.

The performance of all NHS boards is reviewed by the Scottish Government's health department at annual reviews, in addition to providing a chance for members of the Highland's NHS board to discuss prominent issues and achievements that have come to light throughout the course of the year.

Ms Minto will chair the review and ask a selection of questions submitted by the public. It will give her an opportunity to meet with clinicians, colleagues, and representatives of patients, carers and communities, in order to hear about the work and performance of NHS Highland over the past 12 months.

NHS Highland chairwoman Sarah Compton-Bishop said: "This will be an opportunity for us to explain the progress we’ve made in the aftermath of the pandemic, and outline some of the challenges faced by NHS boards, particularly in remote and rural areas.”

There is no need to book prior to attending the meeting.

The session will also be recorded and shared on the NHS Highland website afterwards.
