The significant allocation is part of a £380 million package handed out to health boards across Scotland and comes on top of the £1.7 billion already provided to health boards and Health and Social Care Partnerships in the last year.

NHS Forth Valley said it welcomed the extra funding, especially as COVID-19 figures in the area begin to rise once more, and said the money has already been allocated to areas where it is most needed.
