Pocket Profile: Personal friend of deposed Tory Scottish secretary Michael Forsyth and former chair of Forth Valley health board, who resigned amid a bitter row over an acute services review.
A row, surely not?
In a battle between two competing DGHs - Falkirk and Stirling royal infirmaries - she was perceived to favour the latter (her husband happened to be a consultant surgeon there).
What the public said then: More than 2,000 Falkirk Herald readers signed a petition demanding her dismissal.
What they say now : Words to the effect of 'Iris who?'
What she said: Announcing her resignation she conceded that her husband's job at Stirling might be seen as a potential conflict of interest.
Was she right to go?
It was a popular decision. Even Tories breathed a sigh of relief.
How did it all end?
It hasn't. Two years on acute services are still under review. But a preferred opt ion is to keep both un its open under one merged trust.
Where is she now?
Still in Stirling.
What she says now: 'Surely you didn't expect me to ring you back long-distance?'
And her views on the current review?
'I don't have a public face anymore. Why would anybody care what I have to say?'
