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?
Our aim is to deliver better outcomes for people living with dementia and their carers and to ensure that all our services are appropriate and accessible. Locally Bromley CCG has a commitment to commissioning which deliver better outcomes for those living with dementia as well as their carers. By working closely with our 45 GP member practices, the voice and experience of our frontline practice staff is able to inform our decisions regarding future commissioning opportunities.
We will work with our partners to provide services and support to enable people to live well with dementia and offer support to carers and families.
We will also promote dementia friendly environments within our local healthcare providers, including staff awareness within Bromley CCG and our GP surgeries, encouraging GP surgeries to join Bromley DAA
We are in the process of establishing a new and comprehensive post diagnosis dementia support service for people living in the borough of Bromley with a diagnosis of dementia and for their carers - a dementia support hub.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We will work closely with our partners in health, social care and the voluntary sector to provide ongoing information, support and care to people with dementia and careers to enable them to live well and plan for the future. The challenge will be to ensure everyone receives information at the right time for them while avoiding duplication.
Promoting dementia awareness to all levels of staff and encourage organisationsto ensure their services, premises and facilities are dementia friendly zones.
The implementation of the hub, as well as the success of the service will determine succesculent delivery of this outcome, as it is a new service.
