Palliative care charity Marie Curie required enhanced Wi-Fi to support the roll out of Electronic Patient Records systems. It selected leading Managed IT Services Company GCI to deliver the solution.
Marie Curie is the leading charity in providing care to people with any terminal illness, including dementia, cancer, motor neurone disease, heart failure and Parkinson’s disease. It offers hands-on care, emotional support and therapies to people living with a terminal illness and their families, both in their own homes and in the charity’s nine hospices. The charity has over 4,000 permanent staff and 10,000 volunteers, and is also the largest provider of hospice beds outside of the NHS. It typically cares for nearly 8,000 people within their hospices, more than 33,000 patients in their home, and provides support to over 1,000 people though their “Helper” service each year.
