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.
