Boundary House Surgery

Our purpose is to provide people registered with the practice with personal health care of high quality and to seek continuous improvement on the health status of the practice population overall. We aim to achieve this by developing and maintaining a happy sound practice which is responsive to people’s needs and expectations and which reflects whenever possible the latest advances in Primary Care.

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?

In a climate where an ageing population is meeting scarce resources in the community.  We need to improve our offering to make the surgery as accessible as possible to this increasingly visible section of the population.

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

We will review the action plan put in place at our weekly partners meeting and also with our team at our monthly team meetings.

We will review the action plan with the DAA coordinator every year.

2. Actions

  • Dementia Awareness & In House Dementia Champion

    We will encourage all staff to become Dementia Friends by holding a one hour awareness session for them to attend.  We will work with the DAA coordinator to schedule this.

    We will also nominate one member of the team to be the in house dementia champion, attend the DAA meetings and go on the one day Dementia Champion course so they are able to deliver the Dementia Friends information sessions internally.

  • Dementia Friendly Environmental Review

    Using the DAA environmental checklist we will look to make adjustments to our practice to ensure it is as dementia friendly as possible.  We will consider factors such as signage, seating, display boards flooring and automated arrival screens.
