Our chairman's statement about quality
The Quality Account for 2022- 23 again reflects the truly incredible work delivered by all our employees and volunteers. All of us at Mary Ann remain resolute in our commitment to our community in northern Warwickshire. As demonstrated in our recent CQC inspection, the quality of the services we offer is evident and relied upon by so many.
We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to those who run the shops and raise money to allow us to serve our community as without this support none of the clinical outcomes would be possible and the care offered to families would suffer significantly. As I have said before, our Hospice is truly a team undertaking and it is everyone's efforts for which all Trustees are extremely grateful.
As a small, local charity we are substantially dependent on the generosity of beneficiaries, supporters, and other philanthropic contributions. Income generation and financial sustainability remains a significant challenge and one that remains to be addressed to balance the proportion of our income that comes from the NHS or other government funding bodies as opposed to our own charitable fundraising activities.
As we look to the future, we celebrate the achievements we have made on our Green agenda and look to make the delivery of our services ever more sustainable.
As Chair I believe that only by working ever more closely with our community, our numerous partners in healthcare and those who use our services can we be successful in ensuring that access to the very best in end-of-life care and support continues.
I am immensely proud of all those who work for and support our Hospice and as a team I know we are up to whatever challenges may come our way!
Chair of the Board
