Working in partnership
Partnership working is central to everything we do at Marie Curie. We know it is collaboration, at every level, that creates the best end of life care.
For decades now, we’ve worked alongside the NHS, governments and other providers, evolving services, sharing knowledge, and applying the research and policy work in which we invest around £3 million each year.
Through our commissioned services, we provide care which help meets the needs of local populations. Among these partnerships are:
Marie Curie and NHS Fife – expert support in home settings for terminally ill people and those who care for them.
Marie Curie and Cardiff and Vale University Health Board – 24/7 nursing care at home.
Marie Curie and Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust – hospital-based emotional support for terminally ill people and their families and carers.
Marie Curie and Durham Clinical Commissioning Groups – rapid response support in event of urgent need at end of life.
Marie Curie and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust – joined up support across hospitals and community.
Marie Curie and Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group – care packages for Fast Track Continuing Healthcare (CHC).
Marie Curie and Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group – STARS (Supportive and End of Life Care Service).
