1. Action Plan

Ashford and St Peter’s NHS Foundation Trust liaises with the Dementia Partnership Board, The Alzheimer’s Society, the local Dementia Local Implementation Group and through this other Acute Trusts. 

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists a number of outcomes that we 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 and their carers?

Ashford and St Peter’s NHS Foundation Trust has introduced the Butterfly Scheme which allows at-a-glance discreet identification of people with dementia for hospital staff and provides staff with a simple, practical strategy for meeting their needs. 

Ashford and St Peter’s NHS Foundation Trust is represented on the South of England NHS Institute for Dementia Leaders.

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

Ashford and St Peter’s NHS Foundation Trust’s challenge is to get staff to attend the training.  It is mandatory training for clinical staff on mandatory training Older Person’s Study Day.
