I resigned from NHS Forth Valley on the 6th June 2014. This was a very sad day for me as I had worked as a Consultant in older adults in Clackmannanshire for nearly 13 years. I hugely miss the people of Clackmannanshire and wish to reaffirm my sincere gratitude to the small team that I was very lucky to be part of.
I resigned on principle and with an unblemished career.
