NCL Wide
Under Review — this page was due to be reviewed by Friday, 01 March 2024. The information shown here may be outdated.

The Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead provides expert support that places equal emphasis on a person's clinical, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs, understanding that everyone is different.

Some people with a terminal illness choose to stay at home to receive care, and others opt for inpatient care in hospices.

Marie Curie nurses, doctors and healthcare assistants ensure patients are comfortable, managing their pain, helping them maintain their independence, and providing both clinical and emotional support to those at the end of life.  

There is currently a temporary pause to inpatient admissions at the Marie Curie Hospice due to the discovery of discovery of Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) in the building. The team is working hard to secure a new site to continue to provide specialist care and support to people with a terminal illness and their loved ones.  

The Support and Wellbeing Centre is continuing to provide outpatient support remotely to improve both wellbeing and quality of life during a terminal illness, at the end of life, and post-bereavement. 

During the temporary pause to inpatient admissions before a new site is secured, the hospice is delivering the following support remotely:  

  • Advice on money, social benefits, equipment, and services
  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Counselling services for patients and their families
  • Bereavement support
  • Telephone/virtual appointments in medical and nursing clinics
  • Weekly virtual coffee mornings
