A warm welcome from Alistair Burns

Professor Alistair Burns, National Clinical Director for DementiaIt is with great pleasure that I am posting my inaugural message on the Dementia Partnerships portal.

This is an exciting time for dementia and the portal offers a real opportunity to make contact and exchange ideas and documents. The portal offers a huge resource for dementia and has a comprehensive list of publications, guidance and policy documents.

I will be very happy to post my slides from talks I give and documents which I think may be of interest to people.  It has been a real pleasure to go around the country and meet many colleagues from SCNs who are doing really innovative things in dementia.

It is great to have the facility to share experiences and innovative practice.  Please let me know if you have ideas or comments.

Congratulations to the South West SCN and colleagues for producing such a great product.
