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?

As an Acute Trust we are dedicated to improving the experience of people with Dementia.  We are committed to improving the identification and support we provide for this patient group.  We are working proactively with carers and people with Dementia to ensure what we develop is person centered.  We are keen to ensure that people with Dementia only access our services when needed and that through working with the CCG the pathways for supporting people outside of Acute Care are in place. 

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

The challenges to delivering these outcomes include greater partnership working in relation to the CCG and Mental Health providers.
