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.
Mr David Tomkinson MSc, FCIPD
I have over 30 years business experience in Operations, HR, Training and Organisational Development, working for large blue-chip companies. I am one of the founding Directors of andpartnership, a Leadership Development and Change Consultancy based in Farnsfield, Notts, since 2003 which has private, public and charity clients.
My involvement with Beaumond House goes back to 2007 and I became a Volunteer Director in 2010. My skills include Strategy Planning, Facilitation, Team Development, HR and Training. I design and facilitate an annual away day for the board, chair the Operations Sub Committee and sit on the Finance and Income Generation Sub Committee.
I live in Southwell with my wife Gill and we have two grown up children and five grandchildren. I enjoy travelling, theatre and am an Aston Villa season ticket holder, which also makes me an expert in resilience!
After being associated with Andrew & Co LLP (Solicitors in Lincoln and Newark) for almost forty years, retirement arrived.
I have a keen interest in the charity sector and in addition to being a member of Beaumond House Board of Trustees, am also a trustee of St Barnabas Hospice in Lincolnshire and the Lindum Sports Association in Lincoln.
Interests include politics and enjoying sporting activities including walking, swimming and watching cricket at Trent Bridge and rugby at Welford Road.
With a background in corporate, commercial and employment relations, I am hopefully able to make a contribution as a member of the Operations Committee and on governance issues.
Dr Katie Moloney
Dr Katie Moloney is a local GP from Sutton on Trent and has been with the practice since 2010. Dr Moloney is the clinical lead at the practice for Asthma, Family Planning, Men & Women’s General Health, Cancer, Palliative Care, Hypothyroid, Dementia & Stroke.
With a particular interest in Palliative Care throughout her training and her career to date, Dr Moloney will effectively contribute to the Care Services Development sub-committee as well as to the Board of Directors regular meetings.
Katie has three young children and in the little bit of spare time she has for herself she likes to do ‘Tough Mudder’ events.
Dr Della Money
I am the Associate Director for Allied Health Professions at Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust. I am a registered Speech and Language Therapist and have worked in Newark and across Nottinghamshire since 1989. My background is working together with people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health.
I have been a Trustee at Beaumond House since 2016. I bring a range of professional experience of health services, social care, as well as experience of other Trustee and voluntary roles. I am passionate about living and dying well and have personal experience of being a family member for a patient who used Beaumond House.
I have lived in Newark for over 30 years, with my husband and our, now grown-up, children.
Mr Ian Phillips FCA
As head of a local Chartered Accountancy business with a team of over 40 people I bring substantial practical experience of running a sizeable business along with many years of experience dealing with the affairs of a wide variety of other organisations.
Whilst my primary focus is on financial matters I bring expertise in Governance, HR, Marketing and the whole range of skills needed to run an organisation such as Beaumond House and I sit on the various sub-committees involved in these areas.
My family have supported Beaumond House for many decades and I have in recent years been actively involved in the introduction of Gift Aid and The Business Club.
As Managing Director of Abbott & Co. (Newark) for over 25 years, I have experience in finance, operations and marketing among other skills. I hold Directorships of several other businesses ranging from forward thinking Green Technology to Hospitality.
Being a member of the Board of Directors is a great opportunity to apply my business skills to help Beaumond House with their fundraising and operational processes.
I live near Newark with my Alicia and our three teenage sons. I am a keen cyclist (commuting every day whatever the weather) and high adrenalin activity enthusiast.
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 Clinical Services
Head of Fundraising and Marketing
Head of HR
Head of Finance and Operations
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.
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
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.
