20 Apr 2017 Melanie McCarthy - Retirement from the Mortimer Society

Melanie McCarthy has retired from the Mortimer Society in April this year. Melanie has worked tirelessly for the Society for over twenty five years and during that time has lead the charity to many successes but without losing that personal touch and kindness that has helped the Society evolve into the caring, compasionate organisation that it is today.  We all wish Melanie well for a long and happy retirement.


The Mortimer Society extends a warm welcome to our new Trustee, Dr David Oliver.


Dr Oliver worked until recently as Consultant in Palliative Medicine and Medical Director at the Wisdom Hospice in Rochester.  He has take a life long interest in neurological conditions, in particular Motor Neurone Disease in which he has been very active internationally.


David is also an Honorary Professor at the Tizard Centre at the University of Kent; Visiting Professor at the School of Medicine at the University of Zagreb, Croatia and Adjunct Associate Professor at the Western Australian Centre for Cancer and Palliative Care at Curtin University in Perth Australia.


David has delivered lectures and chaired conferences all over the world on a wide range of topics including Palliative Care, Neurological Care and Motor Neurone Disease. He has the advantage of already knowing some of our residents and staff who were delighted that he has agreed to join the Board of Trustees and look forward to working together in the future.
