Time for Dementia

Sussex Partnership’s Time for Dementia programme, which encourages medical students to spend time with families living with the disease, featured on BBC Radio 4’s Your and Yours programme earlier today. The feature includes an interview with Dr Stephanie Daley, Lead for Time for Dementia, as well as students Charlotte Brennan (mental health nursing student at University of Surrey),  patient (Pippa Stanley) and carer (Rob Stanley).

You can listen to the programme on this link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07w5xy1. The item begins approx. 10 minutes into the programme.

The programme is being delivered by Brighton and Sussex Medical School and the University of Surrey in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society and the NHS. It is funded by Health Education Kent, Surrey and Sussex which is part of Health Education England, the body that funds undergraduate training of healthcare professionals.
