Information about our services for patients and families.Our care services
Our Chief Executive and Senior Management Team (SMT) members support the Board of Trustees, leading the charity’s operations and overseeing the day to day running of both hospices – Chestnut Tree House and St Barnabas House. Heading up the various departments within the charity, the SMT meets regularly to review organisational performance, manage the implementation of strategy and agree policy.
Linda is a Registered Sick Children’s Nurse who worked with children with complex epilepsy for many years, eventually managing a large team of professors, consultants, doctors, nurses and therapists.
She joined Chestnut Tree House as Director of Children’s Services in 2007, and under her guidance the charity has progressed from a small team to a workforce of over 100 employees and volunteers, now offering a range of palliative care services and supporting over 300 children, young people and their families.
In 2013 Linda raised over £7,000, enough money to Pay for a Day of care at Chestnut Tree House, by completing ten challenges in celebration of the hospice’s 10th birthday.
Linda is the Caldicott Guardian for Chestnut Tree House. She is responsible for protecting the confidentiality of the children and families’ information and enabling appropriate information sharing. If you require more information regarding this please contact email@example.com
