For those interested in local Health and Social Care Integration there are Public Partnership Forums (PPFs) in Stirling, Falkirk & Clackmannanshire. Each has elected service user representatives who are part of the Integration Joint Boards and the Strategic Planning Groups for the Clackmannanshire and Stirling Health and Social Care Partnership and also the Falkirk Health and Social Care Partnership.

You can take your involvement in local health services further by being involved in the Patient Public Panel, which is designed to ensure local patients and residents have an opportunity to have their say on a wide range of issues which affect them. The Steering Group for the Panel meet every eight weeks, with the full Panel meeting every two months. Find out more about the Patient Public Panel.
‘Friends’ are voluntary groups of local residents who dedicate their time, energy and effort to raising funds for the benefit of hospitals and patients throughout Forth Valley. Find out more about Friends of Forth Valley Royal.
