THE NHS Borders board will meet in Melrose on Thursday, March 7.

The board is responsible for providing health care services to protect and improve the health of the people of the Borders and plan services for the local population.
It is committed to forging effective links with all partners, such as patients, staff, local communities and disadvantaged groups, so their needs and views are placed at the heart of the design and delivery of local health services.
