In October 2011 we had great pleasure announcing the appointment of our President Gordon Cave as a Director on the Board of Trustees of the British Liver Trust. This was a very great honour for Gordon personally and for the RVH Liver Support Group because it was his work within the group that earned him the respect to be chosen for this important role, and indeed for Northern Ireland to be represented at such a high level within a national organisation. Unfortunately, due to recent ill health and the travelling involved to meetings in London Gordon decided to resign from the Board in January this year.

During his time as a Trustee he contributed significantly to the work of the British Liver Trust particularly as a patient advocate where his passion and concern for the plight of those suffering from liver disease and their carers ensured that the patient voice was always heard at Board Meetings.

His most significant achievement was lobbying strongly to have Belfast included in the BLT Love Your Liver Campaign Programme and as a result the Road Show and Pop Up Clinic will be visiting Northern Ireland for the very first time and set up in the Castle Court Shopping Centre on Tuesday 20 May 2014

We are delighted that Gordon will be continuing his work with the RVHLSG.
