Royal Trinity Hospice welcomes the government’s announcement that it will pledge an £25 million in additional financial support to hospices in England.

Dallas Pounds, CEO of Royal Trinity Hospice said:

“We welcome this recognition at the highest level of the vital role that hospices play to those at the end of their lives and their families. It is a positive step to see a financial commitment towards hospices, giving them access to the funds they need to continue providing excellent palliative and end of life care, free of charge.

"At Trinity we must balance how we meet the increasing demand of an aging population and supporting the increasingly complex health needs of our patients, with raising additional funds to meet those needs.

“Our priority is supporting our patients to live every moment they have left, to die with dignity and to be there for those who are bereaved. In order to do this we must have sufficient and sustainable funds. We are encouraged by this news, and by the Prime Minister’s commitment to longer-term support. We hope that it results in effective and sustainable support for our sector as demand and costs continue to rise."

Royal Trinity Hospice is an independent charity providing free palliative and end of life care to 2,500 patients every year across central and south London and their families. Only 25% of Trinity’s annual income comes from the NHS so it must raise over £11 million every year to meet this shortfall.
