Ian says, “I have learnt the importance of dignity throughout life and leapt at the opportunity to be part of a team that ensures that this continues for the seriously or terminally ill. I believe in the value of ensuring everyone has access to the highest levels of care and respect at their hardest time in life. I have been lucky to have a long and varied career. I would like to think that along the way I have learnt some valuable lessons that can add value to the team at St Barnabas Hospice and Chestnut Tree House to deliver outcomes that people really need.”
