We are delighted that the North Lanarkshire IJB has confirmed that there will no reduction in funding to Strathcarron Hospice in the forthcoming financial year. Strathcarron Hospice has provided specialist palliative care services to Cumbernauld & Kilsyth since it opened, nearly 39 years ago. The Hospice provides a wide range of community based services including Community Clinical Nurse Specialists, Hospice@Home, child and adult bereavement support, lymphoedema and Day care as well as Hospice inpatient beds

Many of our supporters will be aware of the previous proposals to reducing funding to Strathcarron Hospice, and the subsequent petition initiated by one of the Cumbernauld GPs.

It is really good news that our funding for 2020/21 is secure and we look forward to continuing to serve the communities of Cumbernauld and Kilsyth. We hope to work with the IJB to secure funding for future years beyond 2020/21.
