The practice supports 7000 patients. Within that are a small number of patients with dementia. The practice see's its role as supportive to both patients and their carers, by awareness of the needs of both , signposting to other services, having trained staff who are empathetic and understanding. Also to create a welcoming environment that patients feel safe in. Ensuring that the practice adopts and implements a "dementia friendly " approach.

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

Probably the most challenging will b ensuring that the environment meets our expectations. keeping up to date with opportunities and support that is available externally for the patients.
