Dementia Friendly Pharmacies Framework

***The Dementia Friendly engagement events are now closed***

NHS England – South (Wessex) Pharmacy Local Professional Network has been developing a Dementia Friendly Pharmacy Framework, with the aim of having 400 Dementia Friendly Pharmacies across Wessex by 31st March 2018.

To become a Dementia Friendly Pharmacy you will need to attend an engagement event and also complete the framework.

There will be eight engagement events held across Wessex during January and early February 2018, which will give you the opportunity to learn more about the framework and also hear about how being Dementia Friendly can support your patients.

Each of the engagement events will have a buffet available from 6.45pm with the presentations starting at 7.30pm:

Thursday 18th January – Double Tree Hilton, Bracken Place, Chilworth, Southampton, SO16 3NG
Tuesday 23rd January – Athelhampton House, Puddletown, Dorchester, DT2 7LG
Thursday 25th January – Holiday Inn, Telegraph Way, Morn Hill, Winchester, SO21 1HZ

Tuesday 30th January – Merley House, Wimborne, BH21 3AA
Wednesday 31st January – Holiday Inn Farnborough, Lynchford Road, Farnborough, GU14 6AZ
Thursday 1st February – Best Western New Holmwood Hotel, Egypt Point, Cowes, IOW, PO31 8BW

Registration for these events is via Eventbrite, please use the links above for the event you wish to attend.

Each pharmacy that attends one of the above events and expresses an interest in becoming a Dementia Friendly Pharmacy will be eligible to claim £100. Each pharmacy that successfully completes the framework and submits a self declaration of completion via PharmOutcomes will be eligible to claim a further £400.

Following the submission deadline of 31st March 2018, NHS England will complete random validation visits to pharmacies that have submitted a declaration on PharmOutcomes.

We look forward to seeing pharmacies at the events across Wessex and engaging with this exciting new opportunity.
