New Interim Chair of Trustees for Hospice

Posted on 23rd March 2017

After three and a half years serving as Chair of Heart of Kent Hospice’s Board of Trustees, Tony Moffatt has resigned from the Board for personal reasons. Tony has been offered an exciting job opportunity in Birmingham which means it will no longer be practically possible for him to continue his position as Chair and Trustee. Sarah Pugh, Chief Executive said ‘We are incredibly grateful to Tony for his six and a half years of service to the Hospice as both a Trustee and Chair, and we wish him the very best with his new role.’

The Board have appointed Jim Barker-McCardle as Interim Chair whilst the recruitment process is started for a new permanent Chair. Jim joined Heart of Kent Hospice’s Board of Trustees in October 2016. He retired from policing in 2013 after 31 years during which he served as Deputy Chief Constable of Kent Police, Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer of the National Policing Improvement Agency and Chief Constable of Essex Police.

Sarah says ‘We would like to thank Jim for taking over as Interim Chair during this exciting yet challenging time for the Hospice. We will shortly embark on the recruitment process for a permanent Chair for Heart of Kent Hospice and invite applications from candidates who have the experience and skills to lead our Board of Trustees and affirm the crucial role we play in our community in supporting patients and their families through terminal illness.’

Anyone wishing to be considered for the position is invited to contact for further information or to arrange an informal conversation with Sarah Pugh, Chief Executive.
