Care & Support

The care we provide is holistic, so we care for the whole person.
We are proud that we have been able to make a difference to the lives of so many patients and their families over the past 30 years and developed the way we support our community. The past year especially is testament to the dedication of our clinical teams and the passion they have for their roles in making sure that every one of the people who we support experiences the unique care delivered by each of our services.
Inpatient Unit

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 nursing and medical care. Inpatient 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 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Community Outreach

Outreach Team

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. The outreach team is also supported by volunteer outreach buddies who are able to provide practical support and situational respite.

Bereavement Team Support Services

We offer bereavement support for adults and children, which is co-ordinated by our specialist family bereavement counsellor. Our bereavement counsellor has developed several initiatives over the last couple of years including:

  • a ‘Walk and talk’ support Group who meet weekly at the Hospice and then embark on an organised walk before returning to the hospice for a group lunch in our cafeteria;
  • a ‘Bereavement Café’ providing an opportunity for those within our community who have been recently bereaved to drop into a supportive environment where they can share experiences with other individuals in a similar position;
  • our ‘Sunflower Group’ for bereaved children and their families providing children with an important forum where they can meet their peers going through a similar experience, which is often a difficult situation to confront within a school setting.

Hospice Liaison Service

Our Hospice Liaison Service 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 this role enables us to be there for more people when it matters the most.

The 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 variety of services.

Supportive Care Team

We have launched two new roles within our Supportive Care Team: Complementary Therapy Coordinator and Hospice Educator.

Complementary Therapy Co-ordinator

Our Complementary Therapy Coordinator provides holistic therapies. These are natural and supportive therapies that can be used alongside conventional medicines and treatments. Our focus is treating the whole person (mind, body and soul) to provide support to those living with a life-limiting illness or caring for someone close to them. The service also supports staff and volunteer well-being offering access to therapies. Available therapies will include Reflexology, Reiki, Indian Head Massage and relaxation therapy.

Hospice Educator

Our Hospice Educator provides internal education and support for our staff and volunteers in collaboration with other team members. She also delivers system wide training within the Living Well centre and across the community focussing on care homes and collaborating with others to support health and social care providers in Bury to enable and empower others to care.

Bury Hospice working in partnership with The Christie

Bury Hospice is delighted to be hosting a new weekly Systemic Anti-cancer Therapies (SACT) clinic, in partnership with The Christie NHS Foundation Trust. This involves 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.

The new clinic commenced in June 2021 and is located in our Living Well Centre every Thursday.

Phlebotomy clinic – every Tuesday 1.30pm – 4.30pm SACT clinic – every Thursday 9am – 4pm

For further information on Chemotherapy and Phlebotomy treatments, please contact the Christie Team:

Being there for our Homeless community

Accessing timely care and support can be particularly challenging for the homeless community. One of our Hospice values is to be enabling and inclusive of the needs of the people of Bury. We are pleased to have recently signed the Homeless Friendly Pledge. This is our commitment to raise the profile of the Homeless Community, to work collaboratively with existing community groups and services that already provide vital support and ensure accessibility to our services.

Your voice matters

We are continually looking at how we can improve the patient and carer experience. The voice of our patients and their families is really important to us which is why we have introduced Iwantgreatcare, which allows patients to leave meaningful feedback on their care, say thank you and help the next patient.

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.
