St John’s Hospice Charity Account

We are a local charity. We have been supporting patients and families in North Lancs and the South Lakes since 1986. Serving a population of over 250,000 people, we are specialists in palliative care for a range of life shortening conditions.

Palliative care focuses on providing patients with relief from symptoms and end of life care. Having a life shortening condition does not mean that quality of daily life should suffer. Our experienced team of specialists work together with our patients to make sure they are getting the care and support they need to live their life the way they want to, as much as possible.

Our In-Patient Unit provides a high standard of specialist palliative care and support around the clock, 365 days of the year, for anyone aged 18 years and over.

Our Day Hospice provides a place for people to come and talk to others going through similar experiences to them, make friends, take part in group exercises or perhaps relax with a complementary therapy session. The aim is to enhance quality of life and to promote independence as far as possible.

Our Hospice at Home team are a dedicated unit of healthcare professionals who visit patients in the comfort of their own home to offer specialist palliative care at the end of life. Offering symptom management as well as support and advice, the team are there to help both the patient and their family.

Personal Savings Allowance Information

AER stands for the Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interestrate would be if interest was paid and added each year (excluding bonuses).Tax free means the interest you earn is exempt from UK Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax. From 6 April 2016 the Government has introduced a personal savings allowance. The allowance is £1,000 for basic rate tax payers and £500 for higher rate tax payers. There is no allowance for additional rate tax payers. From this date tax will not be deducted from the interest the Furness Building Society pays on your savings. If you have any savings income over your personal savings allowance you will have to pay some tax on this. HMRC will normally collect the tax by changing your tax code. Interest from ISAs does not count towards your personal savings allowance because it is already tax free.
