Responding to reports that the former chief executive of troubled NHS Tayside received a £300,000 pay-off, Scottish Liberal Democrat Health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP commented:

"Such a sum of money would be enough to pay 10 nurses for a year.

"Allegations of financial mismanagement were what triggered changes at the top of NHS Tayside. If a payout of this scale was given we need to know how this came about and who at the top of the NHS approved it."
