Hospice Isle of Man is a registered charity that started in 1983. Hospice Isle of Man is governed by a Board of Governors chaired by Sir Miles Walker CBE. Our Chief Executive is Mrs Anne Mills.
More than 350 patients each year are being cared for by the Hospice. This comes at a cost of over £4 million per year, of which £600,000 cash grant plus additional help is given to the Hospice by the Isle of Man Government.
Most of the income comes from fundraising events, regular donations and legacies. 85% of the income is spent directly on patients’ care. 83p of every pound donated is used to look after our patients and their families. All hospice services are provided totally free to patients and their families.
Hospice Isle of Man is an independent healthcare provider, governed by the same clinical governance requirements as Isle of Man Department of Health which means that all staff employed by the hospice are highly qualified health care professionals whose responsibility is to continuously improve all services provided. Nearly 400 patients are referred to Hospice each year with 200 admitted to the in patient unit. Day Therapy Unit in the Scholl Centre has more than 1,000 attendances per year.
Hospice at Home provides nearly 1,000 hours for the adults patients allowing them to be nursed at home and 5,000 hours for children to help parents have a break from caring. Hospice education department provides nearly 2,000 teaching hours.
