Welcome to Bury Hospice

Serving our community when they need us most

Bury Hospice supports local people and their families to achieve the best possible quality of life at a time when this matters more than ever. We opened our doors in 1991 to people facing a life limiting condition and this year celebrate our 30th anniversary. We are continually developing our services responding to what our community needs.

We provide Inpatient Care, an Outreach Community Service and Bereavement services and throughout our 30th year, and beyond, we will be developing our supportive care services.

We have continued to grow our dedicated specialist team, who provide supportive palliative and end of life care as well as information to both patients and their families.

We not only take care of patients' physical needs, we consider their emotional, spiritual and social needs too. We support patients’ families, both during illness and in bereavement. We care for patients throughout their illness, helping to improve their wellbeing and quality of life. We also provide compassionate, dedicated and dignified care for patients at the end of their life.

It costs nearly £3 million pounds per year to run Bury Hospice and as a charity we have to raise over £2.3 million through community support.

Every donation makes a difference.
