It was with great sadness that NHS Forth Valley recently learned of the death of one of its non-executive Board members, Charles (Charlie) Forbes who died at home after a long illness.
Mr Forbes was a former Regional Sales Manager, Healthcare Policy Adviser, Government Relations Manager and Healthcare Manager within the pharmaceutical industry.
Mr Forbes also had an excellent working knowledge of the public sector having served as a local councillor in Clackmannanshire. He was first appointed to Forth Valley Health Board in 2001 when he was Convenor of Housing, Health and Social Services and was later appointed as a non-executive Board member. He had a strong commitment to public life especially the health service, and his enthusiasm, commitment and humour will be sadly missed by friends and colleagues across the organisation.
