We’re delighted to welcome Peter Hartland as a Non-executive Director on our Board of Directors.

Non-executive Directors work alongside our executive team to help influence our strategic direction and to develop the quality of the service we provide at Sheffield Children’s. They are a crucial part of the way that we work, and we’re excited to have Peter joining our community.

Peter has been Chief Executive of St Luke’s Hospice in Sheffield for the last 15 years and will be stepping down from that role in June 2024. St Luke’s is an independent charity providing palliative, end of life and supportive care to adults in Sheffield facing terminal illness through community, day and inpatient services, reaching several thousand service-users each year.

Peter has an engineering and finance background, and has worked in business, higher education and with charities for over 30 years. During this time, he has worked as Finance Director of both the University of Sheffield’s and the University of Leeds’ Student Unions, and has held a number of voluntary roles and trusteeships. He brings to Sheffield Children’s a wealth of passion, experience and knowledge about delivering high quality care.

Peter said: “I can’t wait to learn all about Sheffield Children’s and the people that make it such an amazing Trust. I want to learn about all of our services, not just about the hospital itself but about how we deliver excellent healthcare across all of our sites and in the community. I’m passionate about how we can deliver the best care to all, and I hope I can bring my experience to support the executive team with some of the difficult challenges being faced.”

“My family have received care from Sheffield Children’s in the past, and I am really looking forward to being able to give back to a service that supported us during some difficult times. I’m really looking forward to expanding my knowledge of different services in the organisation and to meeting many of the incredible people here as I do so.”

Peter also hopes to use his invaluable experience to support our board of directors. He said: “In my role at St Luke’s I have worked closely with amazing clinical and non-clinical colleagues, and I’ve observed some of the challenges faced by NHS organisations from the outside. Now I’ll be on the inside, I am eager to see how we can best support our staff. Wellbeing is vital and helping colleagues to get through the challenges that they may face is a key part of our role.”

Welcome Peter, we’re looking forward to working together.
