The New Build Team
Lord Robert Smith of Kelvin - Patron of the Capital Appeal
It is a great honour to play a part in building the new home for Glasgow's Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice. The energy which the Hospice has injected into this new project is remarkable. It has been reflected by the initial goodwill and generosity of the people of Glasgow and the West of Scotland for an initiative that will benefit terminally ill patients, and their families, well into the future.
Morag Cunningham - Director of Fundraising and Communications
Morag began her fundraising career with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra where she was involved in all areas of fundraising. In 1996 she joined the Hospice as a Corporate Fundraiser and was responsible for securing the funds required for the Day Centre extension. Morag progressed within the Hospice to Events Manager and then on to her current role as Director of Fundraising and Communications.
Her wealth of experience in all aspects of fundraising and communication has proven invaluable to the Hospice over the years and she is looking forward to being part of the team that will support the Hospice in its capital appeal and relocation to Bellahouston Park.
Outwith the Hospice, Morag enjoys horse riding, cars and has recently taken up golf.

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 involved managing a significant consultation stage to ensure that all stakeholders are able to make a suitable contribution.
She has worked 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.
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 1,200 patients and families each year. To find out how you can make our plans a reality please visit the How You Can Help page.
