Local Hospices who provide respite and palliative care for terminally ill children and adults and their families are voluntary organisations who are solely dependent on donations and bequests for their funding. Charitable donation is a fine thing a fine tradition. Providing Care for the terminally ill is a responsibility of the state. We have had deliberate ignorance from the established political parties who are complicit in this betrayal. Now that the economy is in difficulty the government and the opposition parties will say there is no money: The Facts are clearly this: Under this Government and the previous one Tourists who came to this country for the sole purpose of accessing free NHS treatment cost us £20 to 40million. Our Health Service is a National Health Service not an International Service. This £20 to 40million should become the minimum state contribution to these fine Local Hospices. In recognising the economic crisis the sum proposed is achievable, substantial and backed by nationwide goodwill. If this petition offends politicians then tough, if it offends those who it intends to help I apologise. The State Should Fund Local Hospices Public Funding for Hospices
Responsible department: Department of Health
This Petition calls on the Government through the Department of Health to publicly fund community hospices in order that the terminally ill children and adults of our society have the best quality care they deserve. In proposing this I suggest that the Government allocate the £40m spent by the NHS on treating overseas Health Tourists and invest that money in our Hospices.
