National Clinical Advisor (Secondary Care Services) to the Chief Medical Officer (Scotland)
David Caesar was appointed as National Clinical Advisor to the Chief Medical Officer (Scotland) in February 2016, advising on secondary care services including major trauma, as well as engaging with the clinical workforce and civil service on the National Clinical Strategy, Realistic Medicine, workforce issues and medical leadership.
He continues to work a full on-call rota at the Emergency Department in the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, where he has previously been the Training Programme Director and Clinical Director. Prior to taking up his current role in the Scottish Government, he was Associate Medical Director at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh.
His current portfolio affords him some time away from being out-negotiated by his 3 small children.
