In a nutshell: A partnership between Marie Curie, St John’s Hospice and a local community trust has resulted in increased access to 24/7 end of life care in areas around North Lancashire. Before the services were commissioned there was a noticeable lack of capacity in the local community team to support patients at short notice and overnight. Now increasing numbers of patients are able to receive rapid access to care and are also able choose where and when their care is received.
