An NHS Tayside spokeswoman said that Ms McLay left the board on 31 July, but declined to provide further details on the terms of her departure. Ms Marra told BBC Scotland: "I understand today that the golden handshake that Lesley McLay has received is over £300,000.
"Quite frankly I think this is a slap in the face for everyone working in NHS Tayside and for the people of Tayside.

Ms Marra said she wanted to know "who signed off" on the payment to Ms McLay.
