As a member of St Ann’s Hospice staff, you have the option to join our Stakeholder Pension Scheme, or if you have previously been a member of the NHS Pension Scheme then you will have the option to remain in this scheme and the hospice will pay the employer’s contributions.

The St Ann’s Hospice Stakeholder Pension Scheme is a contributory scheme, with staff choosing their percentage of contribution. The hospice will then match this contribution up to a maximum of 7%.


The holiday year runs from 1st April to 31st March. All full time staff initially receive 35 days holiday for a full year’s entitlement, this includes Bank Holidays. Part time staff will receive holidays pro-rata to the number of days they work. Holiday entitlement increases after five years service to 37 days (for full time staff) and after 10 years it is 41 days.

Nursing ratios

Staffing ratios on the wards are generally higher than in the NHS. We aim to maintain a higher proportion of qualified staff. This ensures that staff have more time to interact with both patients, carers and their families, and are able to offer higher quality nursing care.

Staff restaurants

We have a staff dining room at both Little Hulton and Heald Green where staff are offered a choice of high quality food, freshly prepared on-site, ranging from a three course meal to sandwiches. The food is sold at subsidised prices.
