"I welcome the opportunity to be the hospice regional representative with the NCPC. I have been the Chief Executive at Overgate Hospice (which is in Calderdale, West Yorkshire) for nearly five years and as such I am a member of the Regional Chief Executive forum. My background is in NHS commissioning. I worked for the NHS for 25 years across Calderdale and Kirklees and was the commissioning lead for Cancer and End of Life care for  11 years. I am passionate about getting it right for patients and their families and bring a wealth of both professional  and personal experience in end of life care. I was the local commissioning representative on the Yorkshire Cancer Network for many years and can clearly see the benefits to patients that partnership working brings when organisations work closely together. Overgate is currently in partnership with our local NHS Foundation Trust – Calderdale and Huddersfield and Marie Curie in the delivery of a specialist palliative care out of hours team and an educator in the community. We are hoping that as this partnership grows  we can further strengthen  end of life care services locally.

After five years of developing and strengthening the hospice I am looking forward to getting out and about again networking with colleagues across the region and nationally and becoming more outward facing in my role, whilst representing your views at the meetings."
