In a nutshell: A new pilot service, run by Marie Curie in partnership with NHS Fife, will deliver tailored care and support at home for terminally ill Fife residents and their families. The service will be coordinated with a locally based team, through a single point of contact and offer a range of support tailored to individual need. It will provide:

  • Short and long periods of nursing care for patients and support for carers.
  • Health and personal care, emotional support and practical assistance following a patient’s immediate discharge from hospital, and additional support to prevent hospital admissions or readmissions.
  • Companionship, emotional support and practical information provided by trained volunteers.
