Chief Executive and Operations Director quit

The Chief Executive and Operations Director of the Scottish Ambulance Service have resigned “in the best interest of all concerned” following an investigation into allegations of bullying within the service.

A spokesperson for the service said:

“Following receipt of allegations made by two employees of the Scottish Ambulance Service against the chief executive, Kevin Doran and the operations director, Grace Kennedy, the service conducted a thorough investigation into those allegations.

During the course of the investigation Mr Doran and Mrs Kennedy have been absent from work on leave.

In the best interests of all concerned it has been agreed that they should pursue their respective careers outwith the service and Mr Doran and Mrs Kennedy have therefore resigned from the service.

Maybe Ambulancenut will share her thoughts on this soon.
