At KEMP Hospice, our services are provided free of charge to our patients and their families. Each year approximately seven weeks running costs are funded by the Primary Care Trust, so the remaining forty five weeks are funded by the good nature of the local community.
The cost of running our specialist service increases year on year, for 2011/2012 the Hospice’s operating costs are expected to be in excess of £850,000.
