Neil Gray has been appointed as Scotland’s health secretary following the resignation of Michael Matheson.

Mr Gray, who led Humza Yousaf’s SNP leadership campaign last year, had been the wellbeing economy, fair work and energy secretary since last March.

Mr Matheson quit ahead of the release of a report into an ยฃ11k data roaming bill racked up on his parliamentary iPad.

Elena Whitham also resigned as drugs minister this week for health reasons.

Mr Yousaf, the first minister, has been reshuffling his government ministers after Mr Matheson quit on Thursday morning.

The new cabinet team will be unveiled later on Thursday.

 

Neil Gray is a relative newcomer to Holyrood and now finds himself in charge of a multi-billion pound health budget.

He became a member of the Scottish Parliament in 2021 – after quitting his Westminster Airdrie & Shotts seat.

After a stint at the BBC he worked for the former health secretary, Alex Neil, in his constituency.
