Marie Curie was in the centre in March and raised £1,287.31 which is fantastic for their research and charity elements.
Marie Curie pioneered new ways of providing care for terminally ill people, helping them to stay at home until the end of their lives.
Working closely with the NHS, local independent hospices and other charities, we developed services designed around people's needs. Research showed that they successfully helped more terminally ill people to remain in their homes.
The Marie Curie Nursing Service continues to grow – reaching increasing numbers of people at the end of their lives. A major study by the Nuffield Trust provided strong evidence that the Marie Curie Nursing Service reduces the need for emergency hospitalisation, allows more people to die at home and cuts hospital costs.
Marie Curie Hospices continued to develop their care, expanding the services they offered in local communities, especially day services, to become regional centres of excellence in care.
