It was a full house for the latest Medicine for Members seminar which took place on Tuesday 22 October.  The seminar, presented by Deputy Chief Nurse Tony Pritchard, focused on the work underway at the hospital to care for patients with dementia and the support the Trust offers for carers. 

The presentation was followed by a lively question and answer session, which was supported by Paul Morris, Lead Nurse for Mental Health.  Topics covered included support for carers when they began to struggle to cope with their caring duties and hospital processes for diagnosing patients with dementia.

Feedback from attendees showed that 97% agreed or strongly agreed that they found the event useful and 94% rated the presentation as good or excellent.  Comments included:

  • “I found the lecture very helpful and raised points that I experienced with my father who is a dementia sufferer.  I felt very reassured and satisfied.”
  • “It was fantastic.”
  • “Very, very enlightening.”
  • “Well worth attending.”
  • “Very useful.”

After the seminar members had tea and coffee with Foundation Trust Governors and had the opportunity to discuss the upcoming Council of Governor elections.
