Dr Ros Taylor, Medical Director at Michael Sobell Hospice and Harlington Hospice

We are delighted to announce that Dr Ros Taylor will be chairing the Digital Legacy Conference for the second consecutive conference. Ros is the Medical Director at Michael Sobell Hospice and Harlington Hospice. She played a leading role in re-opening the bedded unit at Michael Sobell Hospice in 2019.

Ros qualified as a doctor at Cambridge University in 1980. She initially worked as a GP in Cumbria. In 1992 she joined some pioneers to establish a palliative care unit in West Cumbria Hospital and became enthused by the speciality. In 1996, she took on the leadership role at the Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted, Herts, a post she held until March 2015.

A key achievement at St Francis was securing a site for a new 14-bedded hospice building, overseeing the construction project until its completion in 2007.

In 2015 she was appointed Clinical Director at Hospice UK, a national umbrella charity for the hospice movement, and then went back to the bedside as a senior physician in the busy palliative care team at the Royal Marsden and Royal Brompton Hospitals in London.

Dr Taylor now has over 28 years experience in palliative care and was awarded an MBE for Services to Hospice Care following a nomination by a patient in 2014. She is a senior advisor to the Montreal 2022 International Congress on Palliative Care.

Ros will chair this year’s conference from Michael Sobell Hospice along with James Norris (as the co-chair). She tweets as @hospicedoctor
