The Douglas Macmillan Hospice was established in 1973 as a 28-bed care facility for adults facing incurable cancer, serving primarily the North Staffordshire area. Over the past 45 years the hospice has developed a large range of services, providing more care and support including catering for people who wish to remain in their own homes by providing Hospice at Home Care.
The hospice provides care free of charge, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and helps people living with cancer and non-cancer life-limiting illnesses such as advanced heart failure, motor neurone disease and incurable lung diseases. Staff and volunteers are central to the care provided as the hospice aims to promote choice, independence, dignity and an individual journey.
The Douglas Macmillan Hospice hold various charity events throughout the year and also has its own lottery. The DougieMac Lottery raises £1.5million to help fund specialist care services and is open to all members of the public. Each entry costs £1 and prizes range from £10 up to £2,000. Rollover prizes start at £250 and can go up to a maximum of £10,000.
