Hospice’s Chief Executive Officer Dr Barbara Gale set to retire

After leading St Nicholas Hospice Care for the past 16 years, the charity’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dr Barbara Gale MBE, will be leaving the organisation and retiring to spend more time with her family.

Over the coming months, Barbara will work alongside colleagues and the Hospice’s Board of Trustees to recruit and hand over to a new CEO.

Under Barbara’s leadership, the Hospice has been recognised for many significant achievements, including national awards for its innovative clinical work. This work and development will not stop as the Hospice remains dedicated to its vision for everyone to matter in life and death.

With Barbara’s continued support and guidance, the charity will seek to appoint an experienced CEO with the compassion, drive and passion needed to continue to lead the Hospice to establish a greater reach in our community, improving the lives of many more people faced with dying, caring and grief.

The Hospice’s Board of Trustees thanks Barbara for her work and dedication and wishes her well for the future.
