How to take part

If any of our groups are of interest to you; please contact your Health Care Professional to make a referral.

We accept referrals for adults in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale with a diagnosed palliative life limiting condition. We also accept referrals for the main relative/ carer for our peer support group. 

We encourage people to make their own way to Springhill Hospice but if this isn’t possible, we are able to offer transport to and from Day Therapies thanks to our team of volunteer drivers. However, if you are unable to get in or out of a car without help, we may need to arrange ambulance transport to bring you.

For further information please contact us on 01706 649920.
