St Ann’s Hospice is Manchester’s largest hospice providing care and support to people with a range of life limiting conditions.
They provide care through their inpatient service and also through day therapy services caring for over 3000 patients and their families each year. They deliver care which is special and unique to each individual person across three sites and in people’s own homes. They work in partnership with acute hospitals, primary care trusts, community services and voluntary organisations. Their care is free of charge so they have to raise £16,000 every single day so their specialised staff can continue to provide the highest quality of care.
