Meet Ruth

Ruth Islip

Head of Integrated Care

As the Head of Integrated Care, my priority is to ensure that we deliver the very best care and support to all babies, children, young people and families accessing the hospice. I am committed to ensuring we continuously develop our services in order to provide outstanding care for all.

I joined Derian in 2022 after a 17-year career in a Regional Children’s Hospital. I am passionate about bridging the gap between hospital and hospice and ensuring that both families and professionals are aware of all of the support we can provide here at Derian, at any part of their journey.
