Dr Taylor 2 (web portrait)A doctor from Kings Langley who received an MBE earlier this year has announced she is retiring from a Berkhamsted based charity after 18 years of service. Dr Ros Taylor, MBE, DL will be retiring from her role as a director of The Hospice of St Francis in March next year. From October next year Dr Taylor will be working part time for Hospice Care as the Help the Hospices’ National Director. “I also believe it’s time for me to step aside from The Hospice of St Francis to allow a new leader to support the next era of change. “Hospice care has never been higher on the agenda for the NHS and our public and there are many opportunities and challenges which a new leader can navigate.” Throughout the 18-years at the Berkhamsted Hospice, Dr Taylor has seen the hospice grow from a small local hospice on Shrublands Road to a leading centre for palliative care and teaching at its Spring Garden Lane site. “I have played my part but none of the care or development would have happened without the hard work, generosity and loyalty of the staff, volunteers and community who have joined me along the way.” Charles Toner, the Chair of Trustees at The Hospice, said: “Ros has made an enormous contribution to the Hospice of St Francis for 18 years, providing excellent care for our patients and their families, steadily growing the services we offer and enabling us to achieve our vision for hospice and palliative care locally.”
