Shropshire CCG Dementia Day

In February 2014, Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group held a dementia education event in Shrewsbury for patients and carers.

The speakers came from various organisations that provide services for people with dementia across Shropshire.

From this event, we have produced a range of dementia videos covering a variety of topics, to give you access to some of this information.
