How to get a Marie Curie Nurse
We offer free nursing care to people with all terminal illnesses across the UK, as well as support for family and friends. Our nurses generally provide one-to-one nursing care and support overnight in your home, usually for eight or nine hours. In some areas, we also offer care for a shorter period of time, or during the evening or day time, as well as care at very short notice in a crisis.
Our nine hospices offer inpatient and outpatient care and a broad range of day therapies to meet the needs of individual patients with a range of terminal conditions. Many also provide support in the community. Find out more about the services offered by each hospice and the referrals process.
