Putting patients and families first

Marie Curie Cancer Care

Full Description


Marie Curie Cancer Care is a UK charity dedicated to the care of people with terminal cancer and other illnesses.

Why not join the Wibsey fundraising group and volunteer to help raise vital funds for the work of our Marie Curie Nurses and our Bradford Hospice
As the local face of Marie Curie’s fundraising team, volunteers donate their time and effort to raise money to help us continue caring for people with terminal cancer and other illnesses.

Marie Curie Nurses
We are best known for our network of 2,000 Marie Curie Nurses, who work in the homes of terminally ill patients across the UK, providing practical care and support.
Over the year, our nurses provided 1.2 million hours of nursing to 23,406 patients, along with support for their families.

Marie Curie Hospices
Our nine Marie Curie Hospices across the UK provide expert care and the best quality of life for people with cancer and other illnesses.
We are the biggest provider of hospice beds outside the NHS, and we are expanding outpatient and day services at all our hospices. Our hospices reached 8,393 people in 2010/11.
There are Marie Curie Hospices in Belfast, Bradford, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hampstead (London), Liverpool, Newcastle, Penarth (near Cardiff) and Solihull.

Research
Marie Curie Cancer Care is a leader in research into the best ways of caring for people with terminal illnesses, and how care could be improved in future. We have our own research teams, and we fund external research programmes.

Campaigning for patients
We campaign for more patients to be able to be cared for and die in their place of choice. Research shows around 64 per cent of people would like to die at home if they had a terminal illness, with a sizeable minority opting for hospice care.

Our funding
All our services are always free to patients and their families, thanks to the generous support of the public. We fund our nursing services and hospices in 50/50 partnership with the NHS.
