We were extremely happy to support Dementia Awareness Week (17th-23rd May) by sending text messages to randomly selected patients over the age of 18 years offering them the opportunity to  register their interest to Join Dementia Research which is a nationwide service. People with dementia, their carers and anyone interested in research can sign up with the link sent in the text message.  www.joindementiaresearch.nihr.ac.uk. Please be assured that the messages came from Cambrian Medical Centre & no information/data has been passed to any third party.

 

Healthwatch Shropshire

Healthwatch Telford & Wrekin & Healthwatch Shropshire are working together to gather patient, family and carer experiences of those who have received "out of hours" palliative care since the beginning of March 2020. They would like to gain an understanding of the needs and experiences of palliative care patients and their carers in order to help ensure that out-of-hours care is both effective and efficient.  If you would like to share your experiences, please follow this link:- https://www.healthwatchshropshire.co.uk/out-of-hours-palliative-care-survey
