We are building for the future of Patient Care
Late 2019 saw the demolition of our old Inpatient Unit and foundations laid for a brand new purpose built and energy efficient unit; providing modernised, private facilities for our patients and their loved ones.
It is anticipated the unit will be opened to the public later this year offering en-suite rooms with views of the garden and comfortable, light open spaces for get togethers and reflection.
Once the building work is complete, the gardens are set to be transformed thanks to an incredible legacy left by Hospice supporter, Alice Barrass. Patients and their families will be able to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the grounds; with wheelchair and bed access, quite seating areas, and a beautiful natural wooded area with a woodland walk. The landscaping is due for completion in autumn 2021.
The £3.5million pound inpatient unit is being funded by a combination of Hospice reserves, Lottery income, and successful Capital Grant bids and we are indebted to the people of Oldham for their unfailing and generous support. With your on-going help we will be able to continue to meet the needs of local people in the future, offering the right care and support when they need it most.
If you would like to support the Hospice’s transformation you can contribute to the furnishings of the unit below.
Our new In-Patient Unit is now open to patients in the Oldham Community. We are delighted with our new, modern facility which will enable us to provide compassionate and dignified care for patients and their families.
Although, our internal facility is now complete, as with many new build projects we still have some ongoing external works taking place. Once complete at the end of 2021, our patient rooms will have stunning views of the newly landscaped gardens which will provide seating areas and walkways for patients and their families to spend time in.
Please note that due to the ongoing external landscaping, it won’t yet be possible for patients and their families to utilise this outdoor space. Window visits for patients are also currently not possible in order to ensure health and safety on site.
Please bear with us at this time, we look forward to sharing the facility in its entirety with you once the gardens have been completed.
If you have any questions about the above, please contact the Hospice and ask for the Manager of the Day.
