PEOPLE in Great Yarmouth and Waveney have been invited to share their views on end of life care at a series of meetings taking place in the next two weeks.

NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney and Marie Curie Cancer Care will hold five meetings to promote the Marie Curie Delivering Choice Programme, which aims to give patients reaching the end of their life the best possible palliative care in the place of their choice.

As well as improving the level of support available to patients and their families, the programme also aims to give more people who wish to the choice to die at home.

“The Marie Curie Delivering Choice programme is designed to bring partner agencies together to help provide the best possible service for palliative care patients while allowing them to be cared for in the place of their choice,” said Abbie Powell, Programme Manager for the project.
