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.
Hospice UK has compiled information about hospice available across the UK. Visit the Hospice UK website to access this database.
The NHS Inform website provides information about palliative care and is designed for individuals, families and carers.
