(From Aberdeen Press & Journal)
NHS Tayside's medical director retired yesterday after dedicating 36 years to the health service.
Colleagues of Professor Stewart Forsyth gathered in the boardroom at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee to mark the occasion. Chairman Sandy Watson and chief operating officer Gerry Marr were among those present.
Prof Forsyth held training posts in Glasgow and Edinburgh before being appointed consultant paediatrician for Tayside's neonatal service in 1983.
Over the years, he has had a key role in the redesign of paediatric, obstetric and midwifery services in the region.
