Publication type: Report

In a nutshell: In October 2010, NCPC and Help the Hospices surveyed adult palliative care providers to see what their current funding situation was and how much the wider financial climate was impacting on them.

In 2010/11, £150M of revenue funding is due to be distributed to support the implementation of the End of Life Care Strategy (England). Despite this, the survey found:

  • A third of all respondents were aware of care staff cuts in local palliative and end of life care services.
  • Nearly 30% of hospices (voluntary sector and NHS) have already had their statutory funding cut in the current year.
  • 30% of all respondents anticipate a decrease in their statutory funding in 2011/12.
