About the charity

Doctor Kershaw’s Hospice was opened in 1989 thanks to a legacy from Dr John Kershaw, a local GP. The hospice has since expanded and been redeveloped several times to offer high quality patient accommodation and professional facilities for all staff.

The hospice provides specialist palliative care for adults with non-curable, life-limiting illnesses in a peaceful and homely environment. Doctor Kershaw’s is an independent hospice and relies heavily on fundraising activities, donations, legacies, retail income and its charity lottery. A much-loved institution in Oldham, Doctor Kershaw’s serves a population of over 220,000 people and has touched the lives of so many people in the town and surrounding areas.
