Puppy Love

Colleagues from across Forth Valley met up to say farewell to James Cassidy, Service Manager for Community Health Services in Falkirk, who recently retired following a long and varied NHS career.

James started working for the NHS in 1975 and quickly rose through the ranks to hold a Senior Nursing Officer post in Lennox Castle Hospital where he was at the forefront of developing new services for people with a learning disability.

In 2006, James came to NHS Forth Valley, originally as Service Manager for Older Peoples Services and Learning Disability Services.  James’s area of responsibility changed and grew with service changes, resulting in him becoming Service Manager for the Falkirk Community Health Partnership in 2012.

Looking to the future, James has bought a mountain bike and will continue with his theatrical career as a star of local musicals and stage shows.  He is also considering buying a puppy for the family.
