Killearn Cemetery – Water Supply
Following an enquiry from a resident about providing a water supply at Killearn Cemetery, we have a reply from Stirling Council. Regulations now require that all water supplies are tested regularly to ensure that no harmful bacteria such as Legionella are present. This is the case even if the water is not intended for drinking, as disease can spread in other ways. Stirling Council does not have the resources to be able to carry out regular testing and so cannot provide a water supply at the cemetery. The Council is, however, considering all possible options.
Nominate Your Local Health Hero
NHS Forth Valley has introduced a new Staff Award Scheme to recognise the hard work, care and commitment of both staff and volunteers and are seeking nominations for your local health hero. It could be a nurse, doctor, cleaner, porter physiotherapist or one of the many volunteers who support the work of NHS Forth Valley. They could work in a hospital, clinic, office, health centre or in one of the many community health teams across Forth Valley.
There are six Award Categories to choose from which recognise the work of individuals, teams, services and departments.
- Top Team
- Inspiration Award
- Outstanding Care Award
- Volunteer Award
- Innovation Award
- Unsung Hero Award
Nominations can be made online at www.nhsforthvalley.com/staffawards and nomination forms are also available in key locations across Forth Valley. The deadline for nominations for this year's awards is Friday 26th September 2014.
You can also nominate NHS Forth Valley staff and volunteers for a national Scottish Health Award – find out more at www.scottishhealthawards.com.
