In the previous financial year Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was able to maintain a £1 million grant but this year has taken the very difficult decision to reduce it to £750,000. The CCG has been having discussions with their Chief Executive since June 2018 about possible schemes which the CCG could commission to offset the loss from 1 April 2019 onwards. The CCG remains committed to continuing to explore alternatives with the Hospice and they are engaging with them to find solutions together.
