Why is your organisation committed to the NDAA and the Dementia Statements?

Optimising patient-centred care especially for those with LT conditions to a central pillar of the RCGP mission and strategy.  Mental Health including dementia is an enduring clinical priority for the College.  This five-year enduring priority focusses on increasing recognition of the vital role primary care plays in the management of mental illness and ensuring that primary care colleagues can provide high quality mental health care. The project is developing education and training with a focus on developing listening skills and the promotion of multi-disciplinary training. The Mental Health Priority is also addressing the GP curriculum, core skills and personal development plans.
