Earlier this month in my Merseytravel role I was delighted to attend Claire House to help present a cheque from Merseytravel for £80,000. While I was there I heard that Claire House had to purchase some drugs that were not funded by the NHS. I contacted Kathy Doran, Chief Executive of Wirral Primary Care Trust (PCT) to enquire why this was?
Today I have had an email response from Kathy Doran who has explained the situation to me. You can read that email by clicking here. I am delighted that Wirral PCT has agreed to fund the ‘Stock Medicines’ that up to know, has had to be paid for by Claire House. This is worth circa £1,000 per year, and whilst not a tremendous sum of money, when you consider the £2.4 million costs of operating Claire House every year, is a £1,000 per year less that they have to raise. So thank you Mrs Doran, an excellent response.
