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?

Oxford Health NHS FT is committed to better care for patients with dementia.  Our mental health service uses the Care Programme Approach (CPA) to build the service and proved care that is focused on the individual. We continue to build up responsive community services with the aim to reduce the need for patients to come into hospital. We work to improve physical health care of patients with dementia under our care.

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

The nature of a condition such as dementia means many organizations can be involved in delivering the right care.
