Commenting on the appointment, Mr Coleman said he was excited to be taking on the role.

“Mercy Hospice holds a special place for me as I have a long history with the Sisters of Mercy, having been influenced by them from my very first day at school. Mercy’s values of compassion, dignity and respect have helped me through life, and I’m privileged to be part of an organisation that lives these values in a tangible way, every day.

“The opportunity to join an organisation that I have a personal connection with was very exciting,” Mr Coleman said.
