Public Health Scotland (PHS) is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Kellet as its new Director of Strategic Planning and Performance. 

Michael will join PHS on a two-year secondment from Scottish Government, where he is currently the Director for Population Health.  

Angela Leitch, Chief Executive of PHS, said: 

"Michael has an impressive 26 years’ experience working in public service in Scotland mainly within Scottish Government. There he has taken on a range of key roles over the years including in health, resilience, and education. I am very much looking forward to working with Michael, who will pick up a wide range of priorities as we continue to mature and develop as an organisation".

Michael said:

“I’m really excited about coming to work in PHS. I’ve seen – and sought to support from government – the vital, high-quality work PHS does and look forward to playing my part in the organisation. I can’t wait to get started and to lead on the strategic planning and transformation programmes”.
