Pam McClinton has been appointed as the new chief executive of North London Hospice.
Ms McClinton has been working at the hospice for over three years as its director of nursing.
Announcing her appointment, the charity said she has extensive palliative care experience – both clinically and in the education sector – and has held both local and national posts.
As well as being a registered nurse, she has a postgraduate certificate in education and a masters in professional practice. She has also completed the Cabinet Office leadership programme.
Ms McClinton said: “I am really looking forward to working with all staff and volunteers to continue to establish hospice services in the communities that we serve, to bring good quality care – and support to those that are facing a particularly difficult time in their lives and trying to find their way through unknown territory.”
North London Hospice is a registered charity providing free of charge specialist end-of-life care for people in the London boroughs of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey.
It cares for around 1,400 patients a year at home in the community, at its 17-bed inpatient unit at Woodside Avenue and its purpose-built day services facility in Winchmore Hill.
