Financial benchmarking

Details of some of the information we have gathered around benchmarking for hospices. We are using this information to inform the support we give to hospices.

Hospice accounts report

Each year we produce a 'Hospice Accounts Report', analysing financial information and trends from independent, charitable hospices based on their published accounts.

The current and previous report can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

Lists from annual Hospice Accounts

As part of our work on the Hospice accounts report, we produce a number of lists, ranking hospices by financial size in a number of different areas.

The lists give a useful overview of the sizes of income, expenditure and profits to different hospices but there may be some discrepancies due to the way the information is presented.

The current lists are based on the way information is presented in the hospices signed accounts for the financial year ended between 1 April 2014 and 31 March 2015.
