Lisa Piper, Trustee

‘Originally from Michigan, USA I have lived in the area for nearly 20 years.  The past 19 years have been spent as a Director/Company Secretary for a recycling company built from the ground up.  Having dealt with serious illness and personal loss myself, I hope to bring a greater understanding of the needs of both the patient and the patient’s family. The community here welcomed me with open arms, and I feel honoured to be able to give back.

Prior to retirement, he was main Board Director and Chief Operations Officer of Xaar Plc, a high-tech manufacturing company based in Cambridge, with a staff of 500 and a turnover of approximately £100m per annum.

Heather Mitchell, Clinical Nurse Specialist

Heather will be heading up our new Cancer Support Unit (more news to be announced shortly) and is a registered nurse who is passionate about the provision of community based palliative care. She has worked in Primary care for most of her nursing career as a District Nurse, Practice Nurse ad a Hospice at Home Nursing Manager.

Heather said: “We only get one chance to get palliative care right, and I firmly believe that we owe it to ourselves as professionals and to those entrusted into our care to ensure that this one chance is the only chance we should ever need. I always strive to do the right thing, while accepting this is not necessarily the easiest option and have always led by example. There isn’t anything I would ask of any of my nurses to undertake that I wouldn’t being either clinically competent of prepared to do myself.”

Heather was awarded the title of Queens Nurse in 2008, one of only 40 such nurses in the country at that time, as formal recognition of her commitment to promoting the highest standards of patient care within the Hospice at Home setting.

Jane has previously spent three years on the Executive Committee at the National Association for Hospice at Home, only leaving to spend time with her newly adopted children. She re-joined the Association in 2015 as a Trustee and took up the position of Co-Chairs last year.
