Introduction

Our department aims to provide a dementia friendly environment for patients.  So we have a designated waiting area at CL1 / CL2 for patients with dementia or memory impairment.

Our vision is to provide safe, high quality care to every person affected by dementia and memory impairment.

The department offers patients the opportunity to opt into the butterfly scheme and ‘Reach out to me’ questionnaires to aid in informing staff on how they can provide individual support to patients while they attend hospital.

Your departmental Dementia Champions are:

Stacey Wadsworth – Radiotherapy Team Leader

Robert Brown – Senior Radiographer

Lydia Dearing – Radiographer
