We are aiming to become a Dementia Friendly Practice to support both our Patients with Dementia and their Carers. To do this, all our staff have had Dementia Awareness Training and we have identified an in-house Dementia Champion: Lesley Williams.
Lesley is full-time and is the point of contact for our Patients with Dementia or Carers for People with Dementia who are registered with us. Lesley is not a clinical member of staff, she is the main contact for Dementia patient experience and will act as a link between our Practice and the Memory Team, Local Dementia Advisors and has awareness of a host of local Dementia support services. Lesley can be contacted on 0345 122 0819
