To provide health for our patients in all activities.To ensure the maximum benefit for our patients, whilst being aware of the limit of our resources.To treat all equitably, ensuring that all patients are treated with dignity, respect and compassion.To support and encourage our staff in order to achieve the above.

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

As outlined in our practice objectives, we must be mindful of resources.

2. Actions

  • Dementia Friends

    Look into organising Dementia Friends information sessions to help their understanding of dementia and how some people can be affected by it.

  • Appointment System

    Look into potentially adding to our appointments system to help make practice staff are aware of patients with dementia to ensure that special consideration is taken with missed appointments.  

    Initial Scoping
  • Keep stock important information about dementia

    Ensure that the waiting room has information about dementia, what to do if concerned about memory as well as information about the wide range of local support services avaliable to people with dementia and their carers.
