Sign Open Letter Calling On NHS England To Keep Its Promise To Protect The Children’s Hospice Grant

01 July 2019

Together for Short Lives' survey has found that NHS and local council cuts are hitting lifeline care for seriously ill children. This news comes as NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens’ commitment to protect and increase children’s hospice funding is not being met.

Together for Short Lives is calling on NHS England to keep its promise to protect the Children’s Hospice Grant – and go further by increasing it to £25million per year.

Gabriella Walker, a bereaved parent, is inviting children’s palliative care services, families of children with life-limiting conditions, and the general public to add their name to her letter to Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock, calling for urgent action.
