It is looking to appoint two new non-executive members - and the posts are open to people across the district, and from all walks of life.

As well as a strong commitment to improving the health of local people it is also particularly keen to encourage applications from people with previous clinical experience or financial skills.

Janie McCusker, who chairs NHS Forth Valley said: “You don’t need to be a health expert or to have experience of the NHS as we are looking for people with a diverse range of experience, knowledge and skills.

“However, we would be particularly keen to hear from individuals with experience of delivering community health services and those with a financial background to complement the skills of existing Board members.”
