We recently launched a new Health and Wellbeing Hub with walk-in events across Salford and, following feedback from patients, have now set up additional drop-in sessions which anyone with a life-limiting illness can attend free of charge. Carers, relatives and health care professionals are also welcome.
A registered nurse will be available and can provide advice, as well as organising referrals to a doctor, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, counsellor, social worker, dietitian, nurse or complementary therapist for any issue related to a life-limiting illness.
Our aim is to provide our specialist support to as many people as possible across Greater Manchester, and we’re really pleased to be offering more free drop-in sessions for local patients, carers, family members and health professionals. At the hospice we provide a breadth of advice and services for local people, and patients are often surprised to hear that we can support them right through their illness – from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. Supporting people in the community is a big part of our work, and we’re hoping as many people as possible will drop in to receive information or to meet our team.
