A Tribute to Dr Kevin Moore

25 Aug 2020


It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Dr Kevin Moore, a kind, dedicated man and much-loved friend and respected colleague to all at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice. Dr Moore played an important part in developing the Hospice and its services, practicing for 26 years in a number of different roles and becoming Medical Director in 1994. 

Dr Moore’s enthusiasm for quality care and the needs of the patients within our borough always came first. In 2001, he completed his vision to bring a major refurbishment to the Hospice’s inpatient and wellbeing facilities, improving the Hospice journey for patients and their families which continues to flourish. Committed to the Hospice, he served on the Board of Trustees and on retirement became the very first Honorary President of the Hospice.  

Many local people are indebted to his skill and care and it is on behalf of our patients, their families and the team at Dr Kershaw’s that we extend our thoughts and love to his wife Jill and his family. He will be missed by all.
