The Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice, on the Hamilton Campus held their Dementia Dialogue yesterday. This event offered staff students, carers, healthcare professionals and others the opportunity to contribute to the national discussion being held currently about the Scottish Government’s review of the 2nd. Dementia strategy and creation of the 3rd. National Dementia Strategy for Scotland which is due to be published in 2016. The Dementia Dialogue consultation events have been taking place all over Scotland, so it has been quite a privilege to be able to host our own public event.
We would like to thank everyone who came along with their views, joined in our discussions and contributed to our submission which will be presented to the organisers in the very near future.
The Dementia Dialogue events have been developed in partnership with the Scottish Government, Alzheimer Scotland, the Scottish Dementia Working Group and the National Dementia Carers Action Network.
