Our Wish List
With only a quarter of the hospice's annual running costs being met by statutory funding, charitable trusts, foundations and funders can provide invaluable support to continue providing expert care and support for our patients and their families. Please scroll down to view our current priority needs.
Energy Efficiency (Solar Panels)

Funding will be used to continue with Wakefield Hospice’s green initiative by installing solar panels to help reduce electricity costs, and increase the sustainability of the hospice. We expect this will save the hospice £27,615 in the first five years, whilst also reducing our carbon footprint.

Children and Young People

Wakefield Hospice recognises that a life limiting diagnosis and a death affects the whole family. 

Funding towards the family care and bereavement service will support young people through a very traumatic time in their lives and provide them with practical skills, capacities and capabilities to help them participate in society as independent, mature and responsible individuals.

Syringe Drivers

When every moment matters, we need to ensure patients are as comfortable as possible and their needs are always being met. Syringe drivers are pivotal in this role. They help reduce symptoms by delivering a steady flow of injected medication at a constant rate under the skin for as long as it is needed. Each syringe driver with lock box costs £1725.

Bath Towels

We want everyone who comes to the hospice to be able to have a bath or a shower and to have a good quality towel to use that is soft and fluffy. Often, we have patients who have really painful skin sores, so they need to have more baths, which means more towels! A bale of towels costs just £30.

Mattresses

Our patients need specialist mattresses to prevent bedsores and provide comfort, with an average of 230 inpatients a year they are a key piece of equipment.
We are looking to replace our older mattresses to ensure that we provide a comfortable stay to our patients. Each mattress costs a minimum of £1,900 and up to £3,510.
