Christmas message from Chief Officer, Patricia Cassidy

In her Christmas message, Falkirk Health and Social Care Partnership’s Chief Officer, Patricia Cassidy, thanks all staff and partners for their efforts this year.

As the festive season approaches, I wanted to take a moment to thank all partners and colleagues, and express my sincere gratitude for your commitment and the incredible work you have done this year.

The commitment shown by all colleagues working to plan and deliver high-quality care and support to those who need it most is truly inspiring.  It is a privilege to work alongside such a compassionate and dedicated team.

As you know, our health and social care system has had another challenging 12 months, but I hope you have been able to see the progress made from your ongoing efforts this year.

Local communities across Falkirk continue to benefit from the work you do. At the Falkirk Council meeting on 14 December, the Council leader, the Convenor of Social Work, and the Labour group leader each separately commended and recognised the continuing commitment of our frontline staff and managers, carers, and partners in continuing to deliver key services and transformation programmes. They asked me to pass on their appreciation to you all.

Thank you again for everything you do, I look forward to continuing to work with you all in the year ahead, and hope you can take time to reflect, relax, and recharge this Christmas.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.

Patricia Cassidy

Chief Officer,
