  • Location: Double Tree by Hilton Coventry, Paradise Way, Walsgrave Triangle, Coventry, CV2 2ST
  • Date: 01 Mar 2019

This one-day conference has been developed in response to Hospice UK’s recent survey of hospice trustees which highlighted that:

  • the challenges and pressures on Boards are greater than ever with an overriding concern about funding and sustainability
  • there is an appetite amongst trustees to widen their  networks for peer support and to benefit from a range of learning offers.

The day will include opportunities to:

  • hear from Hospice UK’s new Chair, the broadcaster and journalist, Robert Peston
  • consider future risks and changes that need to be made to ensure future sustainability
  • network with hospice trustees from across the UK to share ideas
  • learn more about how Hospice UK can support individual trustees, hospice Board and the sector as a whole.    

A copy of the programme is available to download.
