The New Build Team
Heather Manson - Capital Appeal Manager
Heather is responsible for managing all the fundraising required to build the new hospice.
She began her career in the corporate sector, spending thirteen years working for a Japanese electronics manufacturer in both operations and corporate affairs throughout Europe.
After working at a senior level in a professional services company, she made the decision to transfer her considerable commercial experience to the third sector.
Now in her fifth year as a highly successful fundraiser, Heather has a proven track record of working with both individual and corporate supporters alongside major fundraising events. She is looking forward to both the opportunities that will come with the capital appeal and being able to play a major role in bringing the new Hospice to fruition.
If you or your company are able to support us with our plans then you can contact Heather on 0141 429 9855 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Libby Milton - Project Clinical Advisor
Libby's role is to ensure that the Hospice design will suit the needs of our patients, families and staff. In the initial stages, this involves managing a significant consultation stage to ensure that all stakeholders are able to make a suitable contribution.
She is working closely with our architectural and project management teams to ensure that the new Hospice becomes an outstanding 21st century facility as well as ensuring we don't lose what is most precious - the quality of our care.
Libby qualified as a nurse in 1988 and initially worked in an intensive care setting before moving to hospice care. As well as the hospice in-patient unit, she has worked in the hospital and community settings as a clinical nurse specialist.
Her most recent role was as Education Facilitator for The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice where she was responsible for training, supporting and developing Hospice staff as well as external healthcare professionals from other areas.
Libby is very keen to hear the opinions of patients, families and healthcare professionals regarding the new build and can be contacted on 0141 429 9834 or via email: email@example.com
Jack Perry - Chairman of Hospice Developments Limited
Jack Perry is the former CEO of Scottish Enterprise, an advisor for Barclays and Treasurer of Strathclyde University.
It is an honour and a privilege to have been asked to serve as Chairman of Hospice Developments Limited, the body created to make sure that Glasgow's new Hospice not just provides state-of-the-art facilities which will deliver the highest standards of patient care, but importantly, is delivered on time and on budget. We are acutely aware of how challenging our fundraising goals are and accordingly we take very seriously our responsibility to spend wisely every penny raised. Our board is comprised of volunteers with specialist experience in such disciplines as palliative care, project management, construction and finance. We have also selected a highly motivated professional design team to support this endeavor.
What will not change, is the warmth of welcome and depth of care that our patients and their families have valued over the past thirty years. But in future, that care will be provided in a beautiful new building in tranquil gardens fit for purpose for future generations. This vision can only become a reality with your support - so please join us as we build a new home for Glasgow's Hospice.
The company aims to work with clients from the earliest possible opportunity - the first people clients come to when investing in the built, natural and social environment. Their goal is to work with clients through every stage of the development process, as well as post completion, extending into the operational life cycle.
In Glasgow, some recent key projects include:
• The National Indoor Sports Arena and Velodrome
• BBC Scotland's new £80M headquarters at Pacific Quay
• Commercial Estates Group's £30M Aurora Office Development at the former Colville House
Glasgow-based NORD Architecture is recognised as one of Britain's most influential practices. Established in June 2002 by Professor Alan Pert, they have quickly established a reputation for being a creative practice, winning numerous competitions and awards since 2002.
NORD are creatively driven and strive to create architecture that is practical and focused on people and places. This can be seen in NORD's role on the Govanhill Baths refurbishment project where an Edwardian Municipal swimming pool and Steamie has been developed as a project to dramatically transform the existing building into a Health and Well-being centre at the heart of Govanhill.
Their aim is to combine the practical aspects that the Hospice building will require with inspirational design ideas to fully compliment our Philosophy of Care.
We care for over 1,000 patients and families each year. To find out how you can make our plans a reality please visit the How You Can Help page.
