Our unsung hero

We’re proud to announce that David Taggart, a Category Manager within Procurement, Commissioning and Facilities (PCF), is one of the finalists in this year's Scottish Health Awards.

He is nominated in the Unsung Hero category for his work sourcing and supplying the incredible volume of personal protective equipment (PPE) required by Scotland to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

David went above and beyond in gaining a detailed understanding of the requirements and evolving landscape of COVID-19. When asked how he felt about his achievement he said: “The best thing for me is that I am representing all of my National Procurement colleagues, as far as I am concerned all of them are unsung heroes."

We wish David the best of luck in the final and are so pleased that his hard work has been recognised.
