tinaHarrisAs exclusively revealed by IslandEcho yesterday evening (Tuesday), the Chief Executive of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice, Tina Harris, has resigned.

Harris, who has been leading the Newport-based hospice for the past two-and-a-half years, is set to move to the mainland in February of next year to take up a new position in the development of healthcare services for children.

The move comes after a turbulent time for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice with a controversial restructure of staffing with high-profile members of staff departing the hospice, alongside a number of fundraisers and supporting businesses.

Speaking about her departure, Tina has said:

“Whilst I am delighted to have been given the opportunity of a new project which is dear to my heart, I am sad to be leaving EMH at such an important time in its development. I have enjoyed the privilege of working with some truly remarkable people since I joined the Hospice, and will always be proud to be associated with their achievements. I am confident that they are well equipped to continue this vital support to Island families: I am so grateful for their hard work and cheerful contribution, and I wish them every success in the future”.

The EMH Board of Trustees will now appoint an interim Chief Executive.
