Forth Valley University College NHS Partnership

The first formal regional partnership between a health board, university and college in Scotland.

The Forth Valley University College Health Partnership is an ambitious collaboration between University of Stirling, Forth Valley College and NHS Forth Valley which aims to improve patient care and treatment for communities across the region for years to come.

Building on a long-standing relationship between the three institutions, it has four priority areas: 

  • Research 
  • Innovation
  • Learning 
  • Careers

The partnership will deliver transformational change to the health and social care of the area through the delivery of new learning and development opportunities for students and staff, and become a nerve centre for world-class research and innovation developed to directly respond to the needs of local people.
