Do I have to pay? How much does it cost? Sometimes people ask us how much it costs for care. Trinity is a charity and you do not have to pay for any care or service you receive as a patient at Trinity. All of our care is free for patients and their carers, family members and friends. We receive around 25% of the £16 million it costs to run the hospice every year from the NHS. The rest we raised through fundraising and our charity shops.
