Care Services / Marie Curie Nurses
What our nurses do in a nutshell We offer free nursing care to people with all terminal illnesses across the UK, as well as support for family and friends.
Our nurses generally provide one-to-one nursing care and support overnight in your home, usually for eight or nine hours.
In some areas, we also offer care for a shorter period of time, or during the evening or daytime, as well as care at very short notice in a crisis.
What do Marie Curie Nurses do in your area? We provide nursing care in partnership with the NHS. We work in most parts of the UK, but the exact service we provide in each area varies according to what support the local NHS trust has decided it needs from us.
You can find out more about the care and support we offer in your area, and how to get a Marie Curie Nurse, by talking to your district nurse or GP.
