Dementia seminar proves popular with Foundation Trust members

02 May 2012

Our latest ‘Medicine for Members’ seminar for Foundation Trust members—‘Addressing and managing the dementia epidemic’—was held on Tuesday 1 May.

Our latest ‘Medicine for Members’ seminar for Foundation Trust members—‘Addressing and managing the dementia epidemic’—was held on Tuesday 1 May.

This was the second in a new series of free heath events exclusively for patients and members of the public who have joined our Foundation Trust as members.

Dr Richard Morgan, Consultant Physician at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, and Dr Claudia Wald, Consultant Psychiatrist with the Kensington & Chelsea Memory Service, were the keynote speakers.

The event attracted 50 people, which is the capacity of the Postgraduate Lecture Theatre where the seminar was held, and the level of interest shown by Foundation Trust members in the topic of dementia means that we plan to repeat it in the near future.

Feedback from members who attended  the seminar was overwhelmingly positive with the vast majority saying they found the event useful and they would recommend future ‘Medicine for Members’ events to friends and family.

We plan to hold more ‘Medicine for Members’ seminars throughout the year focusing on a range of health issues—these will be publicised to Foundation Trust members in future editions of our magazine Trust News and our monthly e-newsletter Members’ Newsfor members who have provided us with their email addresses.

You can join our Foundation Trust online to find out about ‘Medicine for Members’ seminars and other events for Foundation Trust members.

What the attendees said

  • “The more events like this the better, especially for carers who need support and information.”
  • “This was a welcome opportunity to review progress in dementia treatments.”
  • “A difficult subject well presented.”
