Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia

This practice records information about you, your health and your treatment so that you receive the right care. We record this information so that it is available each time we see you.

We have a legal duty to keep the information we record about you confidential.

The Prime Minister, David Cameron, building on the achievements of the existing National Dementia Strategy has set an ambitious programme to deliver improvements in dementia care and research by 2015.

As part of this the GP practice in conjunction with Lancashire Care Foundation Trust will be delivering a Diagnosis Gap Project working to identify patients that are at a higher likelihood of dementia.

Any patients identified during this project as a higher likelihood for dementia you may be contacted by Lancashire Care Foundation Trust.

You have a choice. If you would like to opt out of this project, please inform the GP practice and your records will not be collected for use in the project. This will not affect your care in any way and you will not be identified in any published results. If you have no objections you don’t need to do anything.

If at any time you would like to know more, or have any concerns about how we use your information, please ask reception for more details.
