How is the cost of living crisis impacting on Hospices?
Many Hospices have recognised the benefit of collaboration in meeting the ongoing challenge of rising costs, increased patient demand and an unreliable supply chain. Hospices across the UK have chosen to address these headwinds by joining forces with HQP, to mitigate costs and risks when procuring both complex and everyday items.
HQP is a social enterprise founded by Hospices with the support of Big Issue Invest and Hospice UK, and provides its Members with access to qualified suppliers and exclusive pricing, bringing long term efficiencies and releasing valuable time to support their patients. The BBC and Hospice UK have highlighted this plight with recent studies on sustainability and cost pressures.
