Providing free specialist palliative care through a range of services to the people of Mid Staffordshire since 1989, Katharine House Hospice exists to offer the best care so that people in our community, affected by progressive illnesses, can live life to the full. Primarily a voluntary organisation, we are held in high esteem by patients and those close to them and are passionately supported by the local community and the services of over 600 volunteers and 230 staff.

Katharine House Hospice has an exciting opportunity, for the right candidate, to join and lead a dedicated care team. The successful applicant will be an exceptional individual with vision and a passion for the delivery of patient and family focussed palliative care services. We are looking for a leader who can empower others and whose influence will extend from the delivery of patient focussed services, through the Executive Team, to the Board of Trustees. You will lead on all matters relating to the care and support services delivered by a small but very progressive hospice based in Stafford.
