Herbert Protocol Registration Form
The Herbert Protocol was first introduced by West Yorkshire Police and is now a national scheme which encourages carers to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a venerable person going missing. The idea is to complete a form, recording all vital details and information such as if there is any medication required, mobile numbers, places previously located and a photograph. There is nothing more frightening than when a loved one, friend or neighbour fails to return when they should. For people living with dementia, this could be quite common and The Herbert Protocol could provide you with some peace of mind. Please see the above leaflet for further information and a the form to register.
Dementia and the Bridgeway Practice
The Bridgeway Practice has signed up to become dementia-friendly. For the past year we have been working with Alzheimer’s Society. Our staff have participated in General Practice specific dementia awareness sessions. We have carried out an assessment of how dementia-friendly we are and have taken steps to improve areas that need attention.
We welcome any feedback about how we are doing from patients, families and carers.
Included here are some useful contacts and links for support or advice if you are living with dementia or caring for someone with dementia.
