Cambridgeshire children's hospice cited as role model
A children's hospice in Cambridgeshire that develops palliative care projects across East Anglia has been cited as a role model for others.
Health Secretary Andrew Lansley visited East Anglia Children's Hospices in Milton near Cambridge on Saturday.
He said £30m was now available to fund similar operations and Professor Sir Alan Craft has been asked to chair a panel to consider proposals.
Mr Lansley wanted to support the type of development he had seen at Milton.
He said: "It is working in collaboration with the NHS, other voluntary organisations and local authorities and I want to support this type of development.
"Every child that is seriously or terminally ill should be properly supported."
