CEO Blog - March 2021


Dear valued supporter,

On Friday 26th February I was delighted to host our Scholl Academic Centre's 3rd Annual Research Symposium, which has become a greatly anticipated annual event in the research calendar.

Joined by David Ashford Minister for Health and Social Care and leading professionals in Palliative and End of Life Care, the title of the day was ‘Advances in End of Life Care’ and included sessions on Wellbeing and Digital Innovations.

The 3rd Annual Research Symposium featured a number of professionals in their field including seminar chair Professor John Ellershaw, Director of the Palliative Care Institute at the University of Liverpool. He was joined by Joanna Coast, Professor in the Economics of Health and Care at the University of Bristol and Bruce Elliot, CEO and co-founder of Memory Lane Games.

I am also incredibly proud that our panel of experts featured some of our very own Hospice members of staff including Professor Sarah McGhee, Cheryl Young Consultant Nurse, Lonan Challis Research Assistant and Alison Christian Physiotherapist. 

Freedom of movement on the Isle of Man meant that we could come together as professionals and we were able to share our expertise widely with webinar access.

It was fantastic to see that colleagues and participants from Spain, Greece, Seychelles, Northern Ireland, England and Scotland were able to join us and the chat box was very busy.

As Director of the Scholl Academic Centre I am incredibly proud of what the team has achieved thus far and look forward to hosting our 4th Annual Research Symposium in 2022.


Best wishes,

Anne Mills
Chief Executive
