Marie Curie Cancer Care wants ‘a change in thinking’ about end of life care because the provision of good-quality end of life care varies greatly across the UK and not everybody is getting the level of care and support they need.
A poll, conducted by ComRes for Marie Curie, highlights public confusion and concern about end of life care services, and the different experiences people have.
The Marie Curie have also developed innovative new evidence and data tools to help all service providers, commissioners and policy maker identify gaps in end of life care in their area. This includes a study from the Nuffield trust about the benefits of Marie Curie nurses in the community, and a web based tool to view the state of palliative care in areas across the UK.
