RCGP and Marie Curie research funding to improve primary care for terminally ill

The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and Marie Curie are calling for applications for a fellowship that will fund vital research into improving primary care services for people living with terminal illnesses and their families.

The two organisations have highlighted the need for more high-quality research to increase the evidence base for palliative and end of life care, an area that they say is significantly underfunded.

The £40,000 grant will be awarded to research that addresses pressing issues in palliative and end of life care related to general practice; namely the provision of out-of-hours services and the interaction between primary care and social care.
