Hospice Patient Donates £1,000 to Help Future Patients 

30 Apr 2021

Arthur Crossland, who was admitted to Dr Kershaw’s for end-of-life care in March was so thankful for the care he was receiving at the Hospice that he wrote a cheque for £1,000 to ensure that others who are looked after in the future receive the same dedicated care and attention that he did.

Arthur, 82, from Failsworth, who sadly passed away a few weeks later couldn’t praise the team at the Hospice enough, he said: “Until I was admitted I didn’t realise what goes on behind the scenes, and just how much the staff do to help people, they are amazing. I wanted to give what I could so that others who are in my situation can be helped and supported like me. They have given me every possible support that they can, and have made what is a difficult situation easier.”

Adele Doherty, Director of Clinical Services at the Hospice is responsible for the team who cared for Arthur, she said: “We are so grateful for Arthur’s generous donation. Donations enable our Hospice to run effectively and for us to continue to provide outstanding end-of-life and palliative care to others across the Oldham community.” 

With over 130 patients cared for by Dr Kershaw’s in 2021 so far, our new In-Patient Unit has been fully utilised since opening, running alongside the community team caring for people in their own homes.
