Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG is working in collaboration with Sandwell MBC, the Sandwell Dementia Action Alliance and other partners to develop a joint strategy for Sandwell, that will describe how we will improve dementia services for our local patients.
Earlier this year we listened to the views of those with lived experience of dementia to help us understand what they think could be improved and enable us to produce a draft version of the strategy. We are now carrying out a further listening exercise to share what we have come up and would welcome your views on what has been developed, to ensure we are focusing on the right priorities and the right outcomes for local people.
We are hosting two engagement workshops as detailed below, aimed at:
• People diagnosed with dementia,
• Those with experience as a carer/ relative/ advocate supporting someone with dementia
• Those who work with either people with dementia or their carers
• Those with a general interest in this topic.
If this includes you we would like to hear from you at one of our dedicated engagement events below:
