Mr Bokor-Ingram has been leading the partnership between NHS Grampian and Moray Council on an interim basis since April 2020, on secondment from Shetland, where he was the joint director and chief officer of their integration joint board.

Mr Bokor-Ingram has a background in adult nursing, having worked in both acute and community settings, and then went on to manage a group of community hospitals in Kent before making the move to London to work for a primary care trust.

He said: “I am delighted to take up this post on a permanent basis. Over the last 10 months I have been consistently impressed by the hard work and dedication of the team across Moray in all sectors, as they work to provide health and social care services in this most challenging of times.”

Dennis Robertson, chairman of the Moray Integration Joint Board said: “I want to congratulate Simon on his appointment. I am confident he is the right person to lead the wider health and social care partnership team in Moray.

"I look forward to working with Simon in developing a programme of change, improving good governance in how we deliver services in Moray.”
