New CEO for Rainbows Hospice
DEE Sissons has been named chief executive officer at Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People and will be taking the charity into its 25th anniversary year.
Latterly she was executive director of nursing for Marie Curie, the largest UK provider of end-of-life care.
Dee has over 40 years’ experience of palliative care nursing and has a national reputation as a proven corporate leader in a healthcare setting.
Her appointment comes at a time when Rainbows hospice is increasingly regarded as a leader in its field, not just within the East Midlands, but nationally as a specialist care centre of excellence.
Dee said: “I am incredibly honoured to be leading a charity with such an outstanding reputation for providing specialist care for children and young people with lifelimiting conditions, supporting their families when they need it most.
“My aim is to build on the good work already being done by this amazing organisation, poised to celebrate its first 25 years – and to ensure it is ready for the next 25! People, their families and their loved ones will be at the heart of everything I do.”
