A key part of the project is the introduction of a  Dementia Nurse Specialist, since May 2014,  to lead the provision of nurse-led dementia care, working in partnership with the older person, and their  family/ carer.

The DNS plays a key role in the development of a robust dementia service through the implementation of the Dementia Strategy.

The DNS is a resource for colleagues, as well as patients and their families, offering specialist advice, education, expert knowledge and support. She plays an important role in the development of quality initiatives, patient assessment and early patient discharge planning by working with the interdisciplinary team providing optimum care for inpatients and outpatients.
