Health Matters: Find out how UH Bristol cares for patients with dementia
University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust will be
holding an event for those interested in hearing about how we care
for patients with dementia. The event will be held at the Trust's
Education and Research Centre, Upper Maudlin Street, Bristol, BS2
8AE on Monday 18 November 2013, from 3pm to 5pm.
The free event is open to all and those who come will be able to
hear about how we care for patients with dementia at our hospitals,
the use of treatments, our volunteer befriending scheme supported
by the Royal Volunteer Service, and how the British Red Cross,
Carers Trust, legal profession and others can support you.
Guests will also meet the Trust's public, patient and staff
governors. Governors represent the interests of patients,
public and staff.
Natalie Godfrey, lead nurse for dementia, says:
"The delivery of high quality dementia care requires a skilled
knowledgeable workforce and effective leadership across our
organisation. Within UH Bristol we have strong strategic leadership
and the commitment of 135 'Dementia Champions' to enable us to
realise our ambitions.
"UH Bristol's successes were recognised at the Fourth National
Dementia Care Awards this month, where I was proudly presented with
the 'Best Dementia Nurse Specialist / Dementia Lead Award'. This is
a tribute to all the staff across the organisation who consistently
strive to improve the care and experience of people with dementia
and their families and carers."
