Charity: Royal Trinity Hospice
At Royal Trinity Hospice, we believe that every moment matters. We go above and beyond to help our patients and their families make the most of every moment they have left. We are here for our patients from the moment of their diagnosis until the end of their life, and afterwards we are here for those close to them, for as long as we’re needed. Hospice care is as much about living as it is about dying. We want our patients to make the best of every moment they have. We want to give them the time and support they need to make informed decisions about how they die. We’ll continue to be there after death, for those close to them, providing specialist emotional and practical support, no matter their age. Last year we cared for 2,550 people at the hospice and out in the community. All our services are free of charge to patients and their families. Last year, it cost us £16 million to deliver our outstanding care, of which only a quarter came from the NHS. We rely on donations and our charity shops to raise the funds we need every year to continue our services.
