£30 million funding for Children’s Palliative Care projects
RMSO Team Group
On 26 June, the Secretary of State announced up to £30 million funding available in 2010/11 only, to support local projects to develop children's palliative care services.
The proposals approved will support the recommendations of the 2007 independent review Palliative Care Services for Children and Young People in England. The review identified variation in the availability of children’s palliative care services and issues around their sustainability. The funding of £30 million will help to address these key issues.
