He said: “It was particularly powerful hearing directly from Ann-Marie, a senior Marie Curie nurse, who described how the nursing team works in partnership with NHS Grampian and other third-sector organisations to provide the right support at the right time.
“And John gave an overview of the Marie Curie Helper Service, which can offer regular support from a trained volunteer; with anything from companionship and emotional support to practical help,” he said.
“I look forward to working closely with Marie Curie in future to ensure people living with a terminal illness, and their families, are supported every step of the way.”
