Board of Trustees

The Hospice trustees are responsible for the governance of the Hospice. The role of the board is to ensure that the charity functions within the law are in accordance with Charity Commission rules; that resources are managed efficiently; that there is a clear overall strategy and vision and that all policies and procedures are in place to manage risk. All major policy decisions concerning the overall direction of the Hospice are made by the board guided by the advice of the Senior Management Group. The board meets bi-monthly and holds an Area General Meeting (AGM) in July of each year. A number of board groups, each with trustee representation, operate to monitor the different aspects of the Hospice. The board elects trustees for a three year term of office, renewable at the AGM.
