The Ayrshire Hospice Board is delighted to announce the substantive and permanent appointment of Tracy Flynn as Chief Executive Officer. 

The appointment follows a robust process led by the Chair of the Board, where all Board Members were unanimous in their decision to appoint after consideration of Ms Flynn's performance in the previous 13 months as Interim CEO.

Tom Steele, Chair of the Hospice Board said: "In her time in the role so far, Tracy has shown an unwavering commitment to our Hospice and has demonstrated exceptional leadership skills. Her strategic thinking, dedication, and vision have been a driving force behind our recent achievements.

"Tracy's appointment brings stability and clarity to the organisation at a critical time and I am confident that the Ayrshire Hospice will continue to thrive and make a meaningful impact in the communities throughout Ayrshire and Arran."

Following the appointment, the Board is pleased to launch the Ayrshire Hospice Strategic Plan 2023 - 2026 which has been developed in co-production and co-design with staff, volunteers and stakeholders. The Plan sets a framework for a transformational period in the history of the Ayrshire Hospice, as we build our new hospice and continue to evolve our services.

Speaking about the new strategy, Tracy said: "the Plan acknowledges the many pressures that Hospices face today in terms of financial sustainability, and attempts to provides solutions to these challenging external pressures by harnessing the inspirational work and dedication that all Ayrshire Hospice staff and volunteers provide.

"I look forward to working with the whole Hospice team to secure financial, organisational and environmental sustainability for the Hospice; while continuing to provide our exceptional care for people and their loved ones in our community."
