A NEW Head of Clinical Services has been appointed at Primrose Hospice.
Vanessa Gibson has more than 20 years’ experience in specialist palliative care and oncology with past roles at Sue Ryder as clinical development manager and St Richard’s Hospice as clinical development lead.
Vanessa, who was awarded the Queen’s Nurse title, started her new role at the hospice at the end of September.
She said: “I’m looking forward to being part of a wonderful team and helping to provide the very best service we can to patients, families and the local community.
“I will be working closely with the team to further enhance the services that it is our privilege to provide to this community.”
Hospice chief executive David Burrell said: “Vanessa has experience and skills gathered from her previous roles that will help guide Primrose Hospice to reinvigorating current and establishing new and exciting services to support this community.
“This appointment further strengthens our care team following the recent appointment of Rachael Hayward as clinical nurse specialist.”
