Gregor Smith

Chief Medical Officer for Scotland
Scottish Government

Gregor is a GP and former medical director for primary care in NHS Lanarkshire.

He was appointed Deputy Chief Medical Officer in 2015 and Interim Chief Medical Officer in April 2020. Alongside Realistic Medicine he leads on a broad range of professional activity, where he is a passionate advocate of person-centred approaches to care.
