Kilbryde Hospice Appoints Professor Anne Hendry as New Chair of Trustees

9 May, 2024

Kilbryde Hospice is thrilled to announce the appointment of Professor Anne Hendry as the new Chair of Trustees. Professor Hendry, who has served as a Trustee since September 2021, brings a wealth of experience and expertise to her new role.

During her tenure as a Trustee, Professor Hendry has played a pivotal role in supporting various Governance Committees, including Clinical Governance and Clinical Quality Audit and Risk, which are fundamental to the mission of the Hospice.

Beyond her contributions to Kilbryde, Professor Hendry serves as a Senior Associate with the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) and holds the position of Director of IFIC’s Country Hub in Scotland. Her extensive background includes national clinical lead roles in Scotland for policy and improvement programs focusing on Long Term Conditions, Reshaping Care for Older People, and Integrated Care. Additionally, she holds honorary academic posts with the University of the West of Scotland and NHS Lanarkshire.

Professor Hendry succeeds Dennis Gallagher, who has served as Chair for the past 14 years. Dennis’s steadfast dedication and leadership have been instrumental in guiding Kilbryde Hospice through both rewarding and challenging times.

Gordon McHugh, Chief Executive of Kilbryde Hospice, expressed his enthusiasm for Professor Hendry’s appointment, stating, “We are delighted to have someone of Anne’s calibre lead Kilbryde Hospice’s Board of Trustees during these challenging times. Anne brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and a deep passion for improving palliative care for, and with, our community.”

Gordon also extended his gratitude to Dennis Gallagher for his exceptional leadership, remarking, “I would like to express my deep gratitude to our outgoing Chair and friend for his unstinting commitment to Kilbryde Hospice over the past 18 years as a Trustee with 14 of those as Chairperson. Dennis has been an exceptional Chairperson and a huge support to me personally and to the organisation. I am delighted that Dennis will continue to serve as a Trustee and Chair of the Finance Governance Committee.”
