UCLPartners and Health Education North Central and East London are working together to roll out dementia awareness training to a wide variety of staff, including those working in hospitals, general practice and community settings.
The 12,000 Trained project aims to ensure that 12,000 clinical and non-clinical healthcare staff receive introductory dementia awareness training by March 2014.
The 12,000 Trained project is a response to the government’s mandate to Health Education England, which includes the ambition to train 100,000 people in dementia awareness by next year. For the UCLPartners population, this means 12,000 healthcare staff.
As part of the 12,000 Trained project, partner NHS trusts will be holding dementia awareness weeks. Events have taken place at Barts Health and Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust.
Dr Paul Russell has joined the 12,000 Trained team and is working on delivering GP training modules.

“I have a relative with dementia so have found this really useful. Excellent thank you. I hope other hospitals adopt the same approach.”
“This session has taught that dementia needn’t necessarily be the end of life.”
“Really insightful – even for non-patient facing staff”
