Management of Severn Hospice
The day to day management of our hospice is undertaken by our Senior Management Team consisting of:
Heather Palin – Chief Executive
Becky Richardson – Director of Care
Norma Ross – Director of Income Generation
Prof Derek Willis – Medical Director
Kerry Davies – Director of Finance and Information
The Senior Management Team is accountable to the Board of Trustees.
We are always striving to deliver the highest possible standards of care to local people.
Our Board of Trustees is responsible for ensuring we do just that by shepherding the hospice to meet the future demands we face.
All of our Trustees are unpaid volunteers who have a wide range of skills and backgrounds, bringing expertise from the private, public and charity sectors.
As a group they have five key areas of responsibility including, shaping the strategic management of the hospice; ensuring the hospice’s finances are managed appropriately; overseeing compliance with the complicated legal frameworks that govern the healthcare and charity sectors; bringing their individual professional expertise to the table; and being ambassadors for the hospice both internally and externally.
