Dementia: a key priority

As we are living healthier and longer lives, dementia is becoming more common. 

In the past there have been very long waiting lists for people to see specialists and quite often their GP practice was not fully involved with the care of people with dementia.  

Dr Peter Brindle explains how Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) aims to improve the awareness of dementia, the importance of making an appropriate diagnosis and ensuring that people with dementia, their families and carers have ongoing support.
