Treetops Hospice Care has welcomed Philippa Shreeve as its new director of clinical services this month.

Treetops, based in Risley, provides nursing care and emotional support for adults and their families in Derbyshire.

Phil, 48, is replacing the current director Kathy Longden. Kathy is retiring after 14 years and will be missed by the charity.

Chief executive George Cameron said: “Kathy has been tremendous over the many years she has worked here and will be sorely missed.

“However, I am delighted with the appointment of Philippa Shreeve. Phil brings new skills and attributes and has a considerable knowledge of end of life care. I am looking forward to working with her, not only in continuing to develop our existing services but also looking at new and innovative ways of introducing new services embedded within the community.”

Phil Shreeve added: ”In my role here, I hope I can help us to nurture and develop that talent, those skills and expertise and share this with others within the NHS.”

Treetops has been supporting people and their families for over 25 years. Services include support, a day care unit, nursing support and a counselling service.
