New guidance has been published by NHS England and NHS Improvement to help address the needs of people with dementia in the COVID-19 pandemic. It complements the existing dementia wellbeing pathway and identifies specific actions to be taken at each stage. In addition to identifying key considerations, it also provides links to a wide range of resources, including those developed by NHS England and NHS Improvement, regional dementia clinical networks, the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector and the Department for Health and Social Care.
This resource is primarily for clinicians working with people with dementia, but can also be used by carers and people with dementia.
Please circulate this to any colleagues who may be interested; any feedback or questions should be sent to ENGLAND.DomainTeam@nhs.net.
