We are delighted to announce that Dr Justine Needham, has now been appointed as new Medical Director of Hospice Isle of Man, undertaking the role in May 2024!

Currently in the role is Dr Ben Harris who is due to retire in May, having given over 30 years of dedication, service and absolute commitment to both us and the Manx public. Dr Ben is almost synonymous with excellence in palliative and end of life care.

Dr Justine Needham will be known to people across the Island, as she is already working two days a week at Hospice, and is also known within many other clinical leadership roles.

About her new role, Dr Needham says, “I am honoured and thrilled to accept the position of Medical Director at Hospice. I already thoroughly enjoy working in Palliative care, and to have the opportunity to extend my role within the organisation is amazing news. Dr Harris will truly be a hard act to follow! I look forward to working together with the rest of the Hospice team to uphold the highest standards of medical care and to continue to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve.”
