@ Sheringham Community Paper - Issue 203 - 1st December 2017 - Final Edition

Alzheimers Society logo

As we wait to see what happens as a result of the vote last week, there are many questions to answer and changes afoot.

But during this period of change, there is one thing we do know. And this is some good news for people with dementia.

After 9,500 people joined our call to Simon Stevens, CEO of NHS England, he has committed to act on our recommendations!

We called for hospitals to publish an annual dementia statement because we believe that through publicising the quality of dementia care hospitals provide, we can hold hospitals to account.

Simon Stevens said that NHS England will be ‘encouraging trusts to publish an annual dementia statement, to set out the quality of the care they provide.’

He also affirmed that they are searching for ways to get hospitals to publish an annual dementia statement.

You can read his letter in full on our website.

This is an important step in our Fix Dementia Care campaign and we will be following up with Simon Stevens on his commitments in the course of the following months.

This shows the power of our supporters sending an email or signing a petition.

Regards,

Sam & the Alzheimer's Society campaigns team
