“Give me something to believe in” - Birmingham and Solihull dementia strategy 2013-16 consultation

A consultation is now under way for the Birmingham and Solihull dementia strategy 2013 -16, which aims to improve the lives of people with dementia and their families and carers. The strategy has been developed on behalf of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) covering Birmingham and Solihull, Birmingham City Council and Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council. It is based on a programme called ‘Connected Compassionate Communities’ that took place in the summer of 2012 in Birmingham and Solihull. People with dementia, their families and carers were asked to share their experiences of services and comment on what they felt would meet their needs.

The strategy describes:
  • what services should be in place for people with dementia in Birmingham and Solihull and their carers
  • what is currently in place
  • a framework for CCGs and local councils to use when planning services

The strategy is organised around the five stages in the dementia pathway:
  1. Health promotion
  2. Recognition and identification
  3. Assessment, diagnosis and planning for the future
  4. Living well with dementia;
  5. Increasing care including End of Life care.

We would like you to have your say in the consultation, which runs from January 6 to April 7, 2014.
