Coun­cil­lor ousted from deputy post

The Oban Times - - News -

The He­lens­burgh coun­cil­lor said: ‘Coun­cil­lor Phi­land has cho­sen to walk away from the ad­min­is­tra­tion.

‘It is not un­rea­son­able to ex­pect him to be co­he­sive with the ad­min­is­tra­tion and ex­pect him to take for­ward its agenda.’

Mr Phi­land said he was ex­tremely dis­ap­pointed in the way he had been treated and that it was a real con­cern that peo­ple would not be­have like adults when there was hard busi­ness to be done.

Mr Phi­land was also ousted from the mem­ber­ship of the health and so­cial care in­te­gra­tion board where he was over­see­ing the merg­ing of ser­vices pro­vided by NHS High­land and Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil.

Mr Phi­land has 37 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in NHS High­land in both gen­eral nurs­ing and as a man­ager in the health board.

Mr Phi­land was re­placed by Mau­rice Corry, a coun­cil­lor from He­lens­burgh.
