The board of trustees agreed with Robin that he would step down from the role at the end of January.

The hospice executive team - the six new trustees that have joined the board, and the existing trustees - continue to work together to develop plans for the coming years.

In the interim, chairman Rod Leggetter and vice chair Helen Glenister, supported by the executive team, have taken over the day to day leadership of the organisation, while plans around the next steps are finalised.
