Our Board of Directors


George Cameron - Chair

I have worked in the charity sector since 1984, with Barnardo's, Royal National Institute for Blind People, Children's Hospice South West and latterly as chief executive of Treetops Hospice in Derbyshire for the nine years until my retirement in October 2018. My career focused on income generation and marketing. I am passionate about the hospice movement and hope my experience will benefit Beaumond House over the incoming years.


I came out of retirement to support the hospice to bridge the gap between CEOs in 2021 and I am now pleased to be Chair of the Board of Directors.


After relocating from the South West in 2009, I settled in Newark in 2012, with my wife Pauline, who I married in 1975 and have a Golden Retriever, Fergus. I originally come from N. Ireland and have two children, Jennifer and Christopher, who both live in Edinburgh, which sees me commuting a lot between the two locations.

Helen Hume

My association with Beaumond House dates from 2011 when I relocated to Newark from Northern Ireland.  I initially worked as part of the nursing team and then as joint Head of Care.


My nursing experience includes roles in cancer care, nurse management, end of life care and teaching and training.  I retired 2 years ago but wanted to continue contributing to end of life care and feel serving as a Trustee gives me the opportunity to bring my nursing experience, knowledge of health care and guidance particularly in the provision of care. 


On a personal note, I am married and have four grown up married children and three grandchildren.  I keep myself grounded gardening on my allotment, walking the dog, and sewing. I volunteer for the Butterfly Project and enjoy helping at a local toddler group .

I was delighted to join the Board of Trustees in November 2023, having previously come across the hospice in the course of my career.


I am a Solicitor working for a local practice and specialising in , what is termed, “Private Client” and which incorporates dealing with wills, powers of attorney, probate and matters of a similar nature.


I have, of course, over the years met many people dealing with 'end of life' and all that goes with it, and believe that the way we die matters, and this echoes the ethos of Beaumond House.


Outside of work when I am not spending time with my family, including my new grandson, I can generally be found in and around horses !

Our Leadership Team

The staff and volunteers of the hospice are effectively supported by a leadership team led by the chief executive.  

Key roles in the leadership team are:

  • Head of Care

  • Head of Finance

  • Head of Fundraising and Communication

  • Head of Retail


Louise Sinclair - Chief Executive

I am very proud to lead the team at Beaumond House Hospice Care.


I first joined Beaumond House in 2007 . My background as Community Matron and District Nurse meant I visited the hospice many times over the years working in the community. I loved the atmosphere at the hospice and when then opportunity arose, I was delighted to become part of the clinical team.


It is the people who make the hospice a special place. The staff and volunteers who offer a fabulous service, caring for people and contributing to the running of the hospice with dedication and compassion. We are privileged to be part of people’s lives during difficult times and our aim is to help make the most of the time that someone has left of their life .

The local aspect is so important. We offer support, advice, care and help for people in the hospice and in their own homes.


Hospice care is special. We work with many other health, social and volunteer colleagues to ensure people have choices, feel safe and have the care they need. Our job is to serve the local community and the local community support the hospice so we can keep doing what we do well. The people who have been touched by the hospice tell us what a difference we have made to them, whether this is spending time listening, lifting their spirits when needed or helping with practical nursing care offering a gentle and warm approach.


I truly love my job. I work with amazingly dedicated people who look after each other as well as the patients.

My recent appointment as CEO means my work is varied and stimulating, and no two days are the same!


Knowing that we, as a team, make a difference to people, offering outstanding care, is the most important focus.

To be able to use my professional skills and experience to contribute and support the workings of Beaumond House is truly fulfilling and adds meaning to what I do.

I first joined the Beaumond House team as a nurse in 2014. I had aspired to work in a hospice since loosing a relative of my own many years before, so was thrilled to walk through those blue doors to start my hospice journey 10 years ago. I have loved it ever since.

It is a privilege to work alongside the staff and volunteers at Beaumond House, who all go above and beyond each day to provide outstanding hospice care to those who need us.

My background is in charity retail, and I currently manage three charity shops and a donation centre for Beaumond House Hospice Care as Head of Retail.

I am proud to lead a dedicated team of shop staff and volunteers who are all passionate about offering a unique and personalised customer experience.


How we are Governed

The Board of Directors is the governing body of the hospice which sets the strategy and culture for the organisation, takes decisions in the implementation of an annual business plan and monitors the performance of the Leadership team for the delivery of the strategy and plan. 

The Board governs the organisation effectively and in doing so builds public and stakeholder confidence that their care is in safe hands and it also ensures that the Hospice is providing high quality, effective and responsive patient-centered care.

The Board ensures that the Hospice has adequate and effective governance and risk. 

The Board meets regularly throughout the year both at formal Board meetings and sub-committee meetings which have delegated powers and responsibilities. Members of the Hospice’s Leadership Team provide reports for these meetings, attend the meetings, and take part in the discussion.

The sub-committees include:

  • Care Services Development

  • Operations

  • Finance and Income Generation

Each committee has written terms of reference that define its procedures, responsibilities and any areas where the committee has the authority to make decisions without consulting the Board. These terms are agreed by the Board and reviewed annually. The membership of committees is made up of Directors and where appropriate specialist advisers. Each sub committee’s chairman reports to the Board on the major issues discussed by the committee since the last Board meeting, any decisions made as well as relevant decisions that need to be made by the Board. Minutes of sub committee meetings are circulated to the Board.
The Board defines and reviews which matters are its own responsibility, which matters can be delegated to its committees and which management and operational matters can be delegated to the Chief Executive. The Board authorises the Chief Executive to sub-delegate these matters to members of the Leadership Team informed by an agreed Scheme of Delegation.
