NHS FORTH VALLEY needs two new board members to make sure the views of locals are represented in local health decisions.

The post would take up around eight hours a week and last for up to four years in the first instance, with a remuneration of £8,251 a year.

Alex Linkston, chairman of NHS Forth Valley, said: “We are looking for people from all walks of life who are committed to improving services for local people across Forth Valley.

"You don’t need to be a health expert or to have experience of the NHS for these roles as we are keen to find people with a diverse range of experience, knowledge and skills.

“We are also keen to encourage people who may not have thought of being a board member before, to consider applying as it’s a great development opportunity and you will be offered the training and support you need to help you make a strong contribution.”
