Highlands and Islands MSP Donald Cameron has said that he is both ‘humbled and proud’ to have been appointed shadow cabinet secretary for health and sport by new Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross MSP.
Mr Cameron said: ‘It is a very great honour to have been entrusted with this position, particularly at such a critical time as the NHS and our communities continue to grapple with the Covid-19 pandemic.
‘Our NHS staff have done such an amazing job since the onset of the emergency and it is humbling to be the chief opposition spokesman in the Scottish Parliament, doing my best to represent them and their patients, and ensure that the vital issues affecting the health service are scrutinised in a proper and responsible manner.
‘As we move towards the Scottish Parliament elections, I look forward to ensuring that our manifesto proposes an even more effective and responsive health service for the future.’
