As a practice, we have worked towards and achieved Dementia Action Alliance status. We submit 6 monthly updates on changes implemented or adopted by the practice. Our Head Receptionist completed a charity walk in aid of Dementia Awareness and the entire Reception team has completed a training session with a speaker from Dementia Awareness to highlight issues and to assist our patients. We have placed additional signs on our toilets to assist our patients and in the last 6 months have created a Dementia Awareness notice board (located by the downstairs lift) offering information on coffee mornings and Dementia awareness cinema information.

All of our registered Dementia patients are allocated longer routine appointments with the GP to ensure enough time and care given. All patients receive an annual assessment appointment with a GP. Patients who are carer’s of a dementia patient also receive an annual review with a GP.
