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 offer all our patients all available treatment option so that they can make an informed decision.

We offer patient centred care, tailor made for our patients needs.

We are a valued part of our local community.

We operate an open door policy and have a duty of candor policy in place. We have written information leaflets available also.

We value our patients feedback and act upon reasonable suggesation made.

We treat all out patients with dignity and respect.

If there was an oppurtinity to take part in research towards Dementia we would be happy to contribute.

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

We understand that the population is growing older and we may see an increase in patients living with Dementia.

As patients move towards the later stages of Dementia if they require treatment we may need to refer the patient onto specialist services.
