Government funding via the NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group covers a declining proportion of the income we need – currently just 26%.
This means that in the financial year 2016-17 we'll need to raise more than £6.1 million of the £8.7 million total income required.
There’s no charge for any of our services to patients.
It costs £993 per hour to run St Luke’s, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Of that £993, we have to raise £735 ourselves.
88% of our expenditure goes on direct costs, 12% on support costs.
Because of our high profile in Sheffield and in the local media, some people assume that we’re a rich charity. We aren’t. If all our income were to cease, we could only keep going for about six months.
