Camden Memory Service recognised in national report

The Camden Memory Service based at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I) has been recognised in a national report as an example of good practice.
The service, which cares for people living with dementia and their families and carers, is mentioned in an Alzheimer’s Society report titled: “From diagnosis to end of life: the lived experiences of dementia care and support”, which looks into the current provision of dementia care in England. Please find the full report here.
The key areas which the report commended the Camden Memory Service for were around: 
  • Ensuring people diagnosed with dementia have access to follow-up opportunities to discuss their diagnosis and that this is embedded within the local pathway 
  • Psychology input for patients and carers, and the development of robust structures for carers to access psychoeducation and skills training 
  • Enabling access to timely specialist input by adopting a ‘step up/down’ model 
  • Recognising the value of Allied Health Professionals when considering the makeup of staffing across services 
Ian Sherriffs, Camden Memory Service Team Manager, said: “This is a fantastic achievement and the recognition is well deserved, reflecting the hard work and dedication of the team in providing high quality care for people living with dementia and those who care for them. We also welcome the report's findings around areas of improvement needed for dementia services in England and have started planning on how to address these issues. I would like to say massive well done to the whole team in achieving this recognition.”
