Bilton Medical Centre

Bilton Medical Centre is a purpose Built inner City Practice that serves a population of 5300 patients. The Practice has a relatively young population and has approximately 12 Dementia Patients on its register. The Practice offers LTC screening such as Asthma, Diabetes, CHD, COPD, Mental Health etc. Patient engagement is key in raising awareness of the Services provided in the Practice. A dedicated patient engagement officer often promotes our Services to the patients in the waiting area and externally at community events. One of our Priorities is to screen patients at risk of Dementia to try and increase our Practice Prevalence and bring in line with the Local and National targets. We aim to raise awareness amongst the team and the patients so that we are able to screen and diagnose patients effectively.

1. Action Plan

 

Our Practice is currently focussing on providing training to staff so that they understand Dementia a bit better to be able to recognise the signs when presented with a patient.

Front line staff are key in reporting concerns to the clinicians and we feel that training is very important.

We have offered appointments to at risk patients but find that engagement is poor.

After training our staff will be a bit more confident to tackle some of the concerns patients may have in relation to their screening.

2. Actions
