In Trossachs & Teith, local members have chosen Gerry McGarvey to be their candidate. Gerry lives in the ward, in Gartmore, with his wife and is an active member of both his local Community Council and Community Development Trust. A passionate voice for his community, Gerry has campaigned on many local issues including this pharmacy legislation which has severely impacted on access to doctor’s surgeries throughout the ward.
“I’m delighted to be standing in the ward where my wife was born and I’ve lived for the last decade. I passionately believe in helping those who struggle to be heard and that’s why I’ve been campaigning heavily in recent years on legislation around pharmacy provision which has had a severely damaging impact on local GP surgeries. I’m also proud to be a part of my local community council and community development trust and know I can do more to help my neighbours and friends as a Stirling Councillor.”
