About Bury Hospice

Serving our community when they need us most

Where are we

We look after a population of over 190,000 (2018), in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury. It is a diverse area of six separate and distinct towns; Bury, Prestwich, Whitefield, Radcliffe, Tottington and Ramsbottom and many of our patients are from areas of high deprivation within the borough.

The Community

We are regarded as a community asset, delivering the Palliative & End of Life Care needs of all communities within the Metropolitan Borough of Bury in the way that each community believes best serves their needs. We are “In the community, for the community, about the community”, valuing diversity and equality and respecting, considering and consulting with all.

Our Vision

Our main vision is under-pinned by the need to focus more on early support and intervention, working closely with community partners to support the development of resilient local communities and focusing on providing fully integrated care at the heart of all pathways.

Our Services

The care we provide is holistic, so we care for the whole person. We endeavour to cater for the physical, emotional, spiritual, psychological and social needs of patients, families and carers and we aim to give patients the best quality of life that we possibly can, by providing care that is appropriate to their individual needs.

Inpatient Unit

The Inpatient unit provides specialist palliative care to adults diagnosed with any life-limiting illness, supporting patients and families through individual assessment and the delivery of specialist nursing and medical care. In-patient unit services include complex symptom control, pain management, transitional care after treatment and end of life care and support for relatives. The department is open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

Outpatient Services

In our Outpatient clinics, we offer palliative care, symptom management and a supportive approach to managing a patient’s condition. It is available to those who need specialist medical support in the management of any complex symptom. Carers are also encouraged to attend to ask questions and share their concerns.

Hospice Liaison Service

We are delighted to introduce the new role of Hospice Liaison Nurse, Sue Irwin. Our liaison nurse works across the community to support patients, families, professionals, and acts as a link between the Hospice and other healthcare settings across Bury. By increasing knowledge about Hospice services, supporting timely access to our services and delivering Hospice care in other care settings it will enable us to be there for more people when it matters the most.

Bereavement Services

We offer bereavement support for adults and children, with Mindfulness sessions, a Walk and Talk Group and Bereavement Café for adults and a Sunflower Group for bereaved children.

Every year we need to raise nearly £3 million, of which over £2.3 million must come from hospice fundraising, community fundraising, our shops and the generosity of our supporters and grant making trusts.

The outreach service supports patients and their families in their own home through the provision of education, personal, practical and emotional support for short periods of time.

Living Well Centre

People are now living well with life-limiting illnesses for many years and we have adapted our services to meet the needs of those individuals. Building upon Bury Hospice’s vision to extend its services and enable people to have the best possible quality of life, we have launched our ‘Living Well Centre’.

The Living Well Centre is an accessible space for our community, providing a central hub for the delivery of supportive and palliative care services, reaching more people by offering a wider variety of services ranging from complementary therapy services to community groups.

The Living Well Centre enables us to provide the best possible care for local people in first class facilities.

It also houses our new weekly Systemic Anti Cancer Therapies (SACT) clinic which takes place every Thursday, in partnership with The Christie NHS Foundation Trust. SACT provides the delivery of both Chemotherapies and Immunotherapies. This most recent development builds on our existing relationship, as weekly phlebotomy clinics have taken place in the Hospice since 2018.

Our Aim

Our aim is to be the pride of Bury and surrounding districts by helping people to fulfil their wishes during life-shortening illnesses and we work hard to provide quality care whenever and wherever it is needed most.
