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?

We are working to the template assigned by the iSpace Pilot

See http://wessexahsn.org.uk/img/projects/CS42738%20Dementia%20Friendly%20Surgeries%20A4%20lowres.pdf

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

The main challenge is to work to the target of ensuring we have met the iSpace criteria by May 2017.
