The Mayor of Beverley was at the manor Road Health Centre where Marie Curie launched a new night service that will assist those in Beverley area who care for terminally ill loved ones from home.
Cheryl Barrett explained “Carers can often find it distressing and hard to come to terms with when some body they care for dearly is taken into hospital for the final hours of their lives. With the help of three trained nurses we can offer assistance in proving much needed support to the people of Beverley locally.”
The new service from Marie Curie will come into effect on the 1st December 2009, when nurses Gail Allotts, Catherine Walker and Jackie Young will provide special cover from the hours of 6pm to 11pm.
