Dear NHS Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group,

I am researching public funding allocations made to hospices in England.
Specifically, I am seeking information on the level of funding made by NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups via discretionary grants to hospices in your area or to those providing services in your area.

I am asking for information related to the current financial year (2019/20) and whether this is any change from previous years.
Please could you provide the following information
1. How many hospices do you allocate grant funding to as a CCG? (these may be within your geographical area or they provide services to your area)

2. What grant funding ( £ 000’s) have individual hospices been allocated in this financial year (2019/2020)?

3. Is the grant funding for any hospice in the current year 2019/20 a change when compared to the previous year 2018/19?

No stayed the same

Yes -- An increase of approximately --- %
or
Yes -- A decrease of approximately. ---- %

4. Approximately what is the population size served by your CCG?

thank you very much for your help

Yours faithfully,

Marion Dakin
