Engagement event for patients and carers to help shape dementia care in Bristol

Are you, or do you know, someone affected by dementia? If so Bristol Community Health wants your views to help shape its dementia wellbeing support service.
The organisation, which provides a range of community healthcare services in and around Bristol, is currently redesigning its dementia support service and wants to ensure the views of patients and carers are included in the project.
The organisation is particularly keen to hear the views of people from Bristol who come from a black and ethnic minority background, because typically the views of these groups have been previously under-represented in the shaping of dementia care.
To engage with patients and carers the organisation has organised a series of workshops at the Rose Green Centre on Thursday November 14 from 10am-12pm for BME groups and 1.30pm to 3.30pm for everyone else. Anyone wishing to attend and give their views should contact Georgina Whitlock at email@example.com or by calling 0117 900 2576. Bristol Community Health is a social enterprise and community interest company, which evolved out of the NHS in 2011. The organisation provides NHS funded community healthcare services throughout Bristol and the surrounding areas and operates more than 30 community healthcare services. From dermatology, district nursing and dietetics, prison healthcare, physiotherapy and palliative care, through to walk-in-centres and wound care our teams help people to live life well.
