Dr Helen Enright - CHAIRMAN
I am a retired Exmouth GP and initially represented local doctors when the Hospiscare service was introduced. I have been a trustee for many years and this will be my second time as Chairman. Hospiscare @ Home is a valuable extension to our excellent clinical services and as a Board we are determined to meet the challenge of the increased funding required.
John Hawkins - VICE CHAIRMAN
Born in Birmingham attended Abingdon School and latterly Exmouth Grammar School, happily married to Joan since 1979. Lived in Exmouth since 1966. Chairman of the Bradleys Estate Agency Group. Member of East Devon Golf Club and previously involved with various different local charities. Serves on the Finance Committee.
I joined the charity as a volunteer driver, then became a Trustee in 2004. My background is in Sales Promotion, as well as 5 years with a national Cancer charity. I was Chairman of Exmouth & Hospiscare from 2011 - 2017.
Dr Jackie Lewis
I am a superintendent pharmacist director of my own award winning community pharmacy. Over the last few years I have particularly specialised in researching how we can support patients with cancer and we have also improved communication on discharge of complex care patients from our local hospital.
I am passionate about pharmacy and helping my patients in the community setting and have a special interest in combining this with my oncology experience. I am currently serving on the British Oncology Pharmacy (BOPA) committee as a Private Provider member and I am working with the local Macmillan GP to educate pharmacy teams in Devon. I am proud to be a trustee on the board of Exmouth and Lympstone Hospiscare.
Myself and my family were introduced to Hospiscare in 2009 when my late wife Amy was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The care that Amy received during her illness and the continuing support received by the family were invaluable. I joined as a Trustee to be integral in supporting the growth of the Charity to care for families like mine in our community.
I am a relatively new trustee and I live in Lympstone. I am pleased to be involved in the Charity because Hospiscare allowed my wonderful mother-in-law to die with dignity. The Hospiscare at Home facility is fantastic with wonderful dedicated nurses which we hope will go from strength to strength. We need all the support we can get and that's where you, the readers of this, come in!
