Bury Hospice opened its doors in June 1991 and the charity has helped thousands of people through some of the most difficult times in their lives with specialist, compassionate and palliative end-of-life care. It costs us £4m to run our services with a 13% contribution from the NHS. The remainder is raised via our income generation streams which includes fundraising, retail and lottery.
Our Inpatient Unit provides a calm and caring environment for our patients and visitors. Our team of staff are truly committed to ensuring everyone is treated with dignity, respect and compassion.
Our Unit has been purpose built and offers single rooms. Each room has an en-suite shower room and a terrace with its own view of the gardens. Patients are encouraged to bring items in to personalise their room and pets are welcome to visit.
The Living Well Centre houses our weekly phlebotomy and Systemic Anti Cancer Therapies (SACT) clinics, in partnership with The Christie NHS Foundation Trust.
We also host a Motor Neurone Disease (MND) clinic. We have partnered with Salford Royal Hospital (Northern Care Alliance) to provide this service for people in Bury who require specialist follow-up care.
The Outreach service supports patients and families in their own home through the provision of education, personal, practical and emotional support for short periods of time. You can be referred to into our service by any health or social care professional.
We have recently extended our outreach service to seven days and are implementing a night respite service in the near future, which will initially run as a pilot scheme and will ensure more people are being supported.
Our bereavement and family support services are offered to help people to cope with the loss of their loved ones.
Throughout the month, Bury Hospice runs Bereavement Cafés and a Walk & Talk group. The groups have been described as an opportunity to get out and meet new people, giving participants the chance to share how they feel, helping to prevent the isolation often felt after a bereavement and a chance to gain new friends.
Another service we offer is the Sunflower Group which was set up to provide bereavement support for children aged five to 11, as well as their parents or carers.
