Hospice running costs
Whilst all our services are delivered at no charge to our patients and their families or carers, there is a significant cost involved in providing our wide range of services.
It costs over £2.8 million a year to run St Mary’s Hospice to continue to provide exceptional care and support for our patients and their families.
22% of our funding is provided by the NHS, meaning that we rely on donations and fundraising to cover the rest. Our community’s support makes a
huge difference and enables us to be there for our patients and their families.
Here are just a few of the ways that we put your money to good use:
Cost per night of care : £577
Average cost per meal: £10.30
Breakfast for patients on the unit £4.00
One hour of patient care : £24
