Marie Curie – Care and Support through Terminal Illness

As a charity we are involved in supporting people through research, campaigning, and delivering care directly to improve the lives of everyone affected by terminal illness. Please see this section of our website for more information https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/who.

For the purposes of your website, it may be that our caring services are the most relevant.

The services we provide include:

  • Network of Hospices providing day therapy and end-of-life care for terminally ill patients as well as support for their families.
  • Nursing service providing palliative care at home for end-of-life patients.
  • Information and Support Line offering practical information and emotional support to anyone affected by terminal illness. We also have a telephone bereavement support service as well as “check in and chat”, both offers regular phone calls for emotional support from our trained volunteers.

How people can self-refer or be referred:

  • For medical care (through our hospices or nurses working in the community) then referrals need to come from a healthcare professional. This would typically be a doctor or a district nurse.
  • The Support Line is open to anyone and people can self-refer themselves to the telephone bereavement service or check in and chat.

PKAVS has a valued team of over 80 staff and 100 volunteers whose skills and expertise enable us to reach our objectives and have the positive impact that we do.
