Business of the House ( 9 May 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: The Leader of the House may be aware that Hastings, St Leonards and some surrounding villages suffered the consequences of a burst water main over the bank holiday weekend, depriving tens of thousands of residents and businesses of running water, and impacting Hastings’ famous and amazing Jack in the Green weekend and May day celebrations. While Southern Water acted promptly in finding and...

Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: The Labour leader of the almost bankrupt Hastings Borough Council and several other Labour councillors resigned from the Labour party citing that the national Labour party has become overly authoritarian, in a “dereliction of local democracy”, and has “lost its moral compass” and is suffocating local voices because its only objective is power for power’s sake. Would the Deputy Prime...

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: I thank the members of the Backbench Business Committee for granting this important debate in this House, as well as all the Members who have spoken today and Hospice UK for their dedicated work and support.

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: I beg to move, That this House has considered the postcode lottery of funding for hospices; and calls on integrated care boards to urgently address the funding for hospice-provided palliative care in their areas. As a member of all-party parliamentary group for hospice and end of life care, I am very happy to be co-leading this debate with my lovely friend, the hon. Member for Darlington...

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: I thank the hon. Member for his intervention, and I could not agree more; he is absolutely right.

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: I do, and I will be coming to that a little later. The future of end of life care is uncertain, as increasing costs and demands are putting huge pressures on hospices and care providers. When it comes to the debate on assisted suicide, it is important that people feel confident that their end of life care will protect them from pain and suffering. Certainly, we need increased funding. More...

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: I agree, and will come to that later in my speech. Demelza receives just 10% of its income from the children’s hospice grant, which ends in March 2025, and just 4% of its income from spot purchases, so 86% of its income must come from fundraising. I am concerned that neither the UK Government nor NHS England has set out whether the children’s hospice grant, which is worth £25 million,...

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: I agree. It is important to point out that most hospices do not want 100% funding from the Government because they need the flexibility to do what they want. Fundraising is a really important part of the local community effort, bringing people together, but when the dependence on fundraising is so vast we might need to intervene to provide extra funding. End of life care is an essential...

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: This is the point of the debate: to work out what sort of funding models we need. ICBs also need to be given the freedom to assess the priorities in their local areas, but I take that on board. We have eight hospices across Sussex, and in 2019 seven of them formed the Sussex hospice collaborative—partnership working to ensure that the hospices’ combined resources can be used to maximise...

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: The hon. Gentleman raises a valuable point, which I am sure the Minister will take onboard.

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: It is unfortunate that your ICB is not very good at all—

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: Yes—my hon. Friend’s ICB is not very good. Obviously, leadership structure and a clear list of priorities is essential to deliver what the public need. The significant funding challenges are particularly concerning in the context of increasing need. Sue Ryder, a palliative and bereavement support charity, projects that the demand for specialist palliative care services in England may rise...

Hospice Funding (22 Apr 2024)

Sally-Ann Hart: Faith is important for so many people. Even for those without a faith, there is a spiritual aspect that needs to be looked after. My hon. Friend the Member for Darlington will cover the report in more detail. Hospices need to be able to plan and invest in their services and develop and train specialist staff, so they need to know in advance how much funding they are getting. Hospices already...
