Help the Hospices Advisory Council appoints chair

Peter Holliday, group chief executive of St Giles Hospice in Staffordshire, has been appointed as the first chairman of the Help the Hospices Advisory Council.

The council has been created after last year’s restructuring of Help the Hospices into a membership organisation. Ninety-five per cent of local hospice charities have since joined.

The council will advise the board of Help the Hospices on the philosophy, policy, practice and professional development of the hospice movement. It will also enable communication between local hospices and their umbrella body.

“As a result of its recent move to a membership organisation, Help the Hospices now has a clear mandate to ensure that local hospices are given the national recognition and assistance they need and deserve,” said Holliday, who has also become a trustee of Help the Hospices.

Hospices from each strategic health authority region in England elect representatives to the council. There are also representatives from Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
