Motion text

That this House celebrates Children’s Hospice Week 2023 between 19 and 25 June; recognises that children’s hospices across the UK support thousands of seriously ill babies, children and young people; is concerned by Together for Short Lives’s recent findings that local NHS funding for children’s hospices in England is currently inconsistent and unsustainable, and that NHS England has stated that 2023/24 is the final year of the Children’s Hospice Grant; and calls on NHS England to protect the Children’s Hospice Grant, distribute it centrally as a ringfenced fund as it is now and increase it by the rate of inflation beyond 2023/24.
