Residents invited to Marie Curie @ Northumbria drop-in event on palliative and end of life care

A drop-in event is being held for people in North Tyneside and Northumberland to find out more about local services in hospital and in the local community for people with life limiting conditions.

Marie Curie and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust are working together to provide high quality palliative and end of life care in people’s homes, local hospitals including The Northumbria, North Tyneside General Hospital and Wansbeck General Hospital and communities across Northumberland and North Tyneside.

This partnership delivers a range of expert care and support for people with any complex, advanced or terminal illnesses, and their families, all co-ordinated and tailored to their needs.

Patients and members of the public including carers and families are invited to attend as there’s information available for them on how this partnership can help them. As well as information stands on stopping smoking, health checks and carer health checks, advice and support for carers, and living a healthy lifestyle.

The event is on Friday 5 February, 11am to 3pm, at the conference centre in at Newcastle Marriott Hotel Gosforth Park, High Gosforth Park, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE3 5HN.
