NHS Borders has started the recruitment process to find a replacement for its chief executive who moved to NHS Lanarkshire.

Calum Campbell left in January and his role has been filled on on interim basis by deputy chief executive Jane Davidson.

NHS Borders said it hoped to find someone to "carry the service through the next phase of development".

The closing date for applications is in May with interviews in June.

"The service has to deliver excellence against tight budgets and a challenging efficiency programme so this will be no easy ride for a chief executive" said NHS Borders chairman John Raine.

"But I want to encourage all those who feel they have the necessary experience and competencies, as well as a strong commitment to our vision and values, to apply."
