Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have published their specification for Bristol's Dementia Wellbeing service.
The service will provide an integrated person-centred primary care-led model for people with dementia and their family and carers. It will provide assessment, diagnosis, on-going wellbeing and services for people with complex needs, through shared care with primary care.
At the heart of the service will be relationship-centred care which emphasises the imperative to consider the needs of the family and carers to ensure on going wellbeing. This must form the focus of the service, which will be supported by appropriately trained professionals, as well as volunteers. This will ensure the right care is delivered at the right time and in the right place.
More information and the full service specification are available on Bristol CCG's website.
