Could you spare a few hours to support patient care or raise vital funds for your local hospice?
This activity is brought to you by The Union in partnership with Manchester Community Central
Dr Kershaw's Hospice provides free, specialist, end-of-life and palliative care (an area of healthcare that focuses on relieving and preventing the suffering of patients) for adults with life-limiting illnesses in Oldham and its surrounding areas in a peaceful and homely environment. The Hospice opened in 1989 following the conversion and development of a 1930s cottage hospital originally built with a legacy from Dr John Kershaw, a local GP.
The Hospice has a team of dedicated clinical staff including doctors, nurses, health care assistants and care givers who support patients in the Hospice’s Inpatient Unit and Wellbeing Centre (day patient facility), along with supporting patients in the community through their Hospice at Home service and Caring Hands, the Hospice’s domiciliary service.
Could you spare a few hours to support patient care or raise vital funds for your local hospice?
Whether you’re looking for a good way to use some spare time or to develop your skills, volunteering for Dr Kershaw’s can be extremely rewarding… and fun!
In return for your time, we’ll offer you training and support and invites to social events. We can also provide you with a reference if you are job-seeking or studying after volunteering for at least 6 months.
