The former Ward Manager for the Oncology Unit at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Liz MacMillan, has been appointed as Centre Head for the new Maggie’s Forth Valley.
Liz is well known in the local community and has valuable links with NHS staff which will help to ensure the ongoing relationship with NHS Forth Valley continues to be a success.
She said: “I was delighted when I originally heard the news that Forth Valley was to have a Maggie’s Centre and always hoped that one day I might be part of the team providing the highest quality support to people with cancer across Forth Valley.
“I am also hugely grateful to everyone who has ever taken part in The MoonWalk Scotland or has even sponsored someone doing The MoonWalk Scotland as it is their determination and goodwill which has made Maggie’s Forth Valley a reality.”
Based in the grounds of Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Maggie’s Forth Valley, which is due to open in summer 2016, will offer a programme of support that has been shown to improve physical and emotional wellbeing.
