About our services

A specialist psychology service is available, as part of the Community Palliative Care Team based at the Marie Curie Hospice, Leeds Road, for patients, relatives and staff in community settings. We work together with a multi-disciplinary team to offer holistic care for people with both cancer and non-cancer diagnoses.

We are also able to offer a limited service to patients and staff in other settings - for example, if this will assist in discharge from hospital or hospice.

We work closely with all staff providing palliative care and together we aim to ensure that patients are directed to professionals or services that are best able to meet their needs. As such we may refer patients to others and will accept referrals from other service areas.
