Highland Hospice employs over 100 full and part-time staff across a range of clinical and medical services as well as support functions such as finance, human resources, facilities, fundraising and retail. We also benefit from the support of over 750 volunteers working in the Hospice, in our shops and fundraising in the community.
The Hospice is led by a Chief Executive supported by a Senior Management Team of four and a Lead Clinician. Oversight and strategic direction is provided by a Board of up to 12 trustees drawn from across all parts of the Highlands and bringing a range of skills and experience to their role. The Board provides oversight through a number of governance committees. Trustees serve up to two three year terms and are appointed through an open recruitment process.
To contact the Senior Management Team, Chair or any other Board Member please email Jo Chisholm, Secretary to the CEO and Board on firstname.lastname@example.org.
