The new Director of Care, at Bluebell Woods Children’s Hospice, brought a wealth of experience to the role when she joined the team earlier this month.
Liz Webster, who has a 30-year background in children’s nursing, academia and research, joined the hospice recently from Leeds Beckett University, where she was a senior lecturer in children’s health and community care.
Her appointment follows the retirement of Julie Devine, who led the Care Team for three years.
Julie said: “I leave Bluebell Wood with many happy memories and a real sense of fulfilment. It has been a privilege and honour to be part of this incredible organisation supporting children, young adults and families through really tough times.”
Liz said: “It’s an exciting time to be joining the inspirational Bluebell Wood and I am really looking forward to this new chapter in my career.”
