Dr Ros Taylor MBE DL  is Hospice Director, Hospice of St Francis, Berkhamsted, Herts.


Ros qualified as a doctor at Cambridge University in 1981. In 1996, Ros took on the strategic leadership role at the Hospice of St Francis. She believes clinical leadership is vital, keeping core values of care in focus from the bedside to the Board. Dr Taylor now has over 20 years’ experience in palliative care, working across all settings including community, hospital and hospice. She also has a special interest in medical education, medical humanities, ‘whole person care’ and has lectured widely, both nationally and internationally. She currently combines the role of hospice chief executive with an active clinical role, which she feels maintains her resilience! She has been on the Board of Help the Hospices since 2009 and chairs their Clinical Expert Committee.

 

Ros is also a Deputy Lieutenant in the County of Hertfordshire and has recently been awarded an MBE for Services to Hospice Care.
