Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions to help guide you and your loved one through your journey with Springhill Hospice.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have and support you whenever we can.

Can Springhill Hospice help me?
Any adult living with a life-limiting illness within the borough of Rochdale and needs palliative care may be able to access our services.
Will I have to pay?
All the services we provide to patients and their families are free of charge. We rely on the support of donations from our local community and raise money through fundraising activities, shops and Lottery to ensure there is no charge for our care.
How do I access Springhill’s services?
Your GP, Consultant or District Nurse can refer you. Alternatively, you can call us directly on 01706 649920.
Is there a maximum length of stay on the In-Patient Unit?

No two people are the same, so the length of time patients stay with us is dependent upon each individual’s personal meeds

The In-Patient Unit is a short-stay facility to enable us to provide our services for as many people as possible.

How is the Hospice funded?

The cost of running the Hospice is now in excess of £3 million per year which equates to over £8,000 per day.

Whilst some income comes from NHS contracts and grants, 70% of our running costs need to come from fundraising within the local community.

I would really like to do something practical to help, can I volunteer?
We always need volunteers with a wide range of skills. If you want to volunteer with us on a regular basis or just occasionally, we will have a role for you. To find out more, please visit our volunteer page or give our Volunteer Co-ordinator a call on 01706 649920.
How can I support Springhill Hospice?

We are grateful for everything our community does for us, whether its volunteering your time and skills, organising or attending a fundraising event, or leaving us a legacy in your will or making a donation.
