I have a couple of points for the Minister. First, there is a lack of trained paediatric nurses, particularly in palliative care, and anything she can do to encourage people to train in that vital specialism would be hugely appreciated. The other point is that children’s hospices are wonderful, remarkable places, but virtually all their money comes from the public through fundraising....
Does the hon. Lady share my concern that that is not the case across all health trusts and that we need to make statutory provision?
Before this job, I ran a children’s hospice. We were able to provide wraparound care to the whole family. We worked with hundreds of families in my time there, and I am really proud to say that because of that care, not one family separated.
