How to get a Marie Curie Nurse

Contact your GP, district nurse or discharge nurse

If you would like a Marie Curie Nurse, you should contact your District Nurse (sometimes called the community nurse) who coordinates your care at home. Your GP’s surgery will be able to tell you who your local District Nurse is and how to contact them.

Your District Nurse will decide whether to request a Marie Curie Nurse; what periods of care are required and whether to request a Registered Nurse or Senior Healthcare Assistant (depending on you and your carer's needs).

If it is agreed that the Marie Curie Nursing Service is appropriate, your District Nurse will contact Marie Curie Cancer Care and request a visit or visits for dates and times previously discussed with you.
