At St Christopher’s Hospice, Cicely engaged Dr Robert Twycross to start serious research very early in the 1970s. Research has continued there. In the 1990s Cicely saw there was so much to do that St Christopher’s could not provide all the research capacity, there was a gap to fill. She knew there are major charities and donors who prefer to provide grants for research, rather than ongoing care. So in 2000, at 10 Downing Street, thanks to Sir (now Lord) Richard Wilson, Cabinet Secretary, she launched the Cicely Saunders Foundation. It is now named Cicely Saunders International (CSI), to do and promote research into hospice care.
