Bury Hospice supports local people and their families to achieve the best possible quality of life at a time when this matters the most.
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 in response to 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 EOL care as well as information to both patients and their families.
It costs £2.9 million pounds to run Bury Hospice, and as a charity we have to raise nearly £2.4 million through community support. Every donation makes a difference.
We look after a population of over 190,000 (2018), in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury. It is a diverse area of six townships; Bury, Prestwich, Whitefield, Radcliffe, Tottington and Ramsbottom and many of our patients are from areas of high deprivation within the borough.
We are regarded as a community asset, delivering the palliative & EOL 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 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 for patients and families with a life limiting diagnosis.
