The role of the Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees are legally accountable for the activities of the hospice and have 5 main respon­sibi­lities.

  • Lead the hospice, establish its mission, vision and values and ensure it has a clear purpose and an overall framework of policies and standards.
  • Develop overall strategies to achieve the hospice’s aims and ensure there is a clear system to delegate implementation of the strategies to the chief executive and the staff team.
  • Monitor the performance of the hospice and ensure that it provides the highest quality of care, balanced with the effective, efficient and economic use of the hospice’s resources and assets.
  • Ensure compliance with the law and accountability to the hospice’s stakeholders.
  • Ensure that the board itself performs effectively and contains people with the skills and experience it needs
