Membership of the Board of Trustees

Highland Hospice is seeking four new Board Members, with a proposed start in November 2020.

Highland Hospice has been providing specialist palliative care and related services across the Highlands since 1987. Highland Hospice is a company limited by guarantee and is an independent charity funded mainly by voluntary contributions and NHS Highland. The organisation employs 140 people and benefits from the support of approximately 900 volunteers.

As well as a commitment to the purpose and values of Highland Hospice and an ability to contribute to strategy and governance, we are seeking individuals with the following skills and experience:

  • Practicing clinicians, ideally with an understanding of rural service delivery
  • Qualified accountants
  • Business owners in the Highlands

To continue to increase the diversity of our board, we would particularly welcome applications from women, people from a range of backgrounds, and those who represent the breadth of geography in which we deliver our services.
