Chair and Trustees
Woodlands Hospice is governed by a Board of 9 Trustees all providing their services on a voluntary basis. They delegate day to day management of the Hospice to the Chief Executive who is supported by a Senior Management Team including the Consultant in Palliative Medicine (Clinical Lead), and the Patient Services Manager.
Nominated Trustees chair individual sub-committees for governance purposes and all the Trustees participate in a programme of unannounced visits to the hospice, giving them the opportunity to familiarise themselves first hand with the workings of the Hospice and an opportunity to personally hear the views of patients, staff and volunteers.
