An update from Bolton Hospice CEO, Leigh Vallance

Last updated 16/10/2020

Following a number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 on our inpatient unit this week (two patients, two doctors and two nurses) we have been liaising with Public Health England and following their advice we are now implementing our contingency plan, which aims to mitigate any potential further risks to patients, staff and visitors.

Coronavirus Visitor Update

VISITOR RESTRICTIONS (To take effect from Wednesday 9th September 2020) During the current outbreak of Covid-19 we have had to restrict access to the hospice building for family members and friends of patients on the Inpatient Unit.

Hospice Care Week

Here at Bolton Hospice we are one of more than 200 hospices across the UK that work with and within local communities to support individuals and families with end of life care.

Remember a charity week

Planning for what will happen after you die isn’t something many people want to talk about, but most of us would like the people, places and causes that are important to us to be looked after well into the future.

John's touching tribute to Bolton Hospice

Everyday is a new challenge for all of us right now, and at the hospice we were recently reminded by an incredible patient we cared for in June who sadly passed away in our care, why we do what we do, and how proud we are to be here for local people and their families when they need us most.
