Emma Johnson

Position at the Hospice
Director of Clinical Services

Background Information
I started work at the Hospice in January 2012. Prior to that I spent 15 years working in the NHS Hospitals in Leeds. I have worked in senior nursing positions in Surgery, Neurosciences, Gastroenterology and Critical Care and have also worked as a Clinical Educator and Directorate Manager.

Our ability to go the extra mile for patients and their families makes me feel proud to work here. I love the fact that we are able to provide holistic individualised care for our patients whether they are attending the Sunflower Centre, are an in-patient or are being cared for in their own homes by our Hospice @ Home service.   
















Bill Hulme

Medical Director

Background Information
I studied Medicine at the University of Leeds and, following graduation, completed my general medical training in St James’ University Hospital. After a 6 month post at St Gemma’s Hospice I realised that this was the career for me, and gained a place on the Yorkshire palliative medicine training rotation in 2004. I was awarded a Master’s Degree in Medical Ethics in 2008 and, on completion of specialist training, went on to work as Medical Director of the Prince of Wales Hospice (2009-2013). I joined St Leonard’s Hospice with my consultant colleague Dr Sarah Wilcox in 2013.
