Wigan & Leigh Hospice provides specialist end-of-life care, and a wide range of support services for more than 1,200 people with a life-limiting illness each and every year.
Many of our patients access our care through the hospice’s medical outpatient clinics, which run twice each week.
This team has specialist knowledge and skills in palliative care and supports patients with advanced illness, as well as their families and carers.
We believe that Hospice care for the residents of Wigan and Leigh should extend beyond the Hospice building.
Care Homes are an increasingly important setting for palliative and end of life care, with around 1 in 5 people in the UK spending their final days in a care home.
Our goal is to care for the ‘whole needs of the whole person’ – providing not only care for the body, but also for the mind and spirit.
Perhaps as important as our care for our patients when they are living is our care for their loved ones when they have gone.
The hospice offers a wide range of therapy sessions to significantly improve patients’ wellbeing.
It isn’t just our patients who need and benefit from our care and support. We know that family and friends can find caring for a loved one to be a challenge.
