Bristol nurse-led dementia management model

Dementia-specialist nurses from the secondary care memory assessment service in Bristol are now based in primary care, supporting GPs as they regain skills in managing dementia.

Over time, it is hoped that practice nurses will be trained to review their patients with dementia and manage the practice register. Each GP practice will have a dementia lead who will support other clinical staff within their practice. The leads will themselves have locality based and responsive memory nurses and consultants available for prompt advice or referral for more complex cases.
