Marie Curie Cancer Care Nurses
That this House applauds Marie Curie Cancer Care nurses for the outstanding support they provide to terminally ill cancer patients and their families and those with other terminal illnesses at the end of their lives, allowing them to live out their final days surrounded by the people they love in their place of choice; recognises that such care can dramatically improve patients' quality of life; notes that 65 per cent. of people would wish to be cared for at home if they were terminally ill, yet only around 18 per cent. of people are able to die at home; further notes that caring for terminally ill patients in their homes does not increase the cost to the NHS; and calls on NHS trusts to guarantee funding for home-based palliative care.
This motion has been signed by a total of 42 MPs.
