The Marie Curie ‘Talk About’ project encourages and supports people to have important conversations about death and dying. It helps people think about and discuss ‘what’s important to me’ when it comes to the end of life.
Specially trained Marie Curie Companions will arrange two or three meetings – in person or on the phone, where they will guide the person through a sensitively thought-out programme of questions and conversations, to help them put together an advance care plan for their end-of-life care.
Patients can self-refer to complete an ACP (advance care plan). The service can be contacted on 0800 3047 412 (Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm).
