Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Important update: Temporary suspension of group and drop-in activities at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice

After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily suspend all groups and drop-in sessions in the Wellbeing Centre at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice as a precautionary measure in response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.

There have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice, however, with the government response moving in to a delay phase, we are taking appropriate steps to minimise footfall at the hospice and reduce the likelihood of onward spread of COVID-19.

We believe this is the most responsible course of action in order to protect our vulnerable patients.

The rest of our hospice services, including the inpatient unit, community services remain open and we ask patients to check our website for further information and follow government advice on COVID-19.

The COVID-19 outbreak is a fast-moving situation and we will provide regular updates on our website. If you have any questions, please contact us on 0161 624 2727.


Guidance on attending or visiting the hospice:

Dr Kershaw’s Hospice will follow government guidelines when determining necessary steps. These are updated daily and will be monitored by the Medical Director/Clinical Matron at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice. The government guidelines are available at the links at the bottom of this page.

The guidance below is therefore subject to change, and we will post any updates on this page.

Please stay at home and self-isolate for seven days, and do not visit the hospice if you have either:

  • a high temperature or fever
  • a new continuous cough

If you are concerned about your symptoms please visit NHS 111 Online


Non-essential visits to the hospice:

Our patients are a very vulnerable group. In order to protect them and our staff and volunteers, we ask that you only visit the hospice if absolutely necessary even if you do not have coronavirus symptoms. If you are not sure, or have any questions about your visit, please contact us on 0161 624 2727.

If you are concerned about your exposure to infection in any other circumstance you should contact 111 online and not visit the hospice.

Please note that whilst the term 'hospice' is used above, this guidance applies to everyone, working or volunteering for, or visiting Dr Kershaw’s Hospice, regardless of setting. We take the wellbeing of those using or working in the hospice seriously and appreciate your support in following the guidance above.

If you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the hospice on 0161 624 2727 and ask to speak to a member of the Senior Management Team.
