Wigan and Leigh Hospice is a registered charity serving people across Wigan borough who have been diagnosed with an illness which is no longer curable. We believe passionately in providing care suited to every patient’s unique needs.
Every day, 365 days a year, we aim to offer a supportive, caring approach to everyone who uses our services.
We believe hospices should be about living as well as dying.

The team have specialist knowledge and skills in palliative care and support patients at an advanced stage of their illness. They provide advice and support by telephone, in clinics and offer home visits when patients are unable to attend clinics. Many of the team are Nurse Independent Prescribers meaning that patients can get rapid access to the medications they require.
Our Hospice in Your Home service is provided by a team of Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Volunteers. The team offers one-to-one time with patients and gives practical as well as emotional support alongside hands-on nursing care, including daytime visits and occasional overnight stays.
Our inpatient unit at the hospice in Hindley has 14 individual patient bedrooms. We admit around 250 patients every year to manage their symptoms, give emotional support or for end of life care.
