Hospices and NHS Specialist Palliative Care Units provide in-patient, day-care and home-care services staffed by a team whose specialist training enables them to help people with particularly complex problems.
Hospitals may have a specialist palliative care team or palliative care support nurse. Macmillan nurses provide advice and support both to hospitals and to people at home. Marie Curie community nurses provide nursing care to patients at home.
Help the Hospices have compiled information about palliative care services available across the UK. Visit the Help the Hospices website to access this database.
