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.
Cathy Stone joined the charity in February 2018 as Clinical Director, a role leading clinical and medical teams at both hospices. Cathy has an MSc in Healthcare Management, she is a specialist adviser for the Care Quality Commission and has advised the Nursing Midwifery Council on various aspects of nursing care.

A registered nurse and midwife, Cathy has a special interest in neonatology and participated in the national steering group which developed the first Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner role in the country.
