1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre has a Dementia Strategy which sets out a three year strategic plan for the Trust (CCC) to deliver high quality person-centred care for people living with cancer and dementia and their carers/families. It builds on the work that CCC has undertaken to date to improve the care of those people living with cancer and dementia and support their carers/families. It sets out the journey we will take over the next three years to ensure we continue to improve patient outcomes, patient experience and partnership working to provide excellence in cancer and dementia care. CCC has integrated the National Dementia five year strategy (2016) into seven local key strategic objectives to improve care for people living with cancer and dementia and support their carers/families. • Provide a comprehensive education and training framework for all staff working within the Trust to empower teams to deliver the best possible care • Improve the Patient experience and journey in our hospital and community services • Create vibrant and positive dementia friendly environments • Care for carers, relatives and friends of people with dementia • Raise standards of care and promote activities that improve the wellbeing of patients and carers • Improve communication to ensure appropriate information is collected and shared between healthcare staff, patients, carers and family members • Develop and maintain collaborative systems wide partnerships

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
