About Springhill

Springhill Hospice first opened its doors back in 1989. We are a 16 bedded purpose-built facility offering specialist palliative care to patients and their loved ones from diagnosis to end-of-life. Our Hospice is embedded in the local community and receives huge support from the people of Rochdale and surrounding areas. We also attract hundreds of volunteers who help and support our patients in all areas of the Hospice.
