RCN Dementia project: survey on the experience of care in general hospitals

Dear Sir/ Madam

The Royal College of Nursing is currently leading a project to help improve the care of people with dementia in general hospital settings. The project is being supported by the Department of Health and is being undertaken jointly with other professional bodies and voluntary sector organisations.

Are you someone living with dementia, or a family member/friend?

Do you have direct experience of care in a hospital setting?

If so, we would like to hear your views about what works, what makes it difficult and what really makes a difference. The responses you provide will help in developing practical resources & guidelines and help influence the way dementia care is delivered in these settings.

For your chance to win £100 of John Lewis vouchers and to help us learn more about your experience of care in hospital, please take a few moments to complete the survey which can be accessed online by clicking on the following link: http://www.employmentresearch.co.uk/dementia_carers.htm

If preferred you may complete the survey by hand by printing it off directly from our website: www.rcn.org.uk/dementia

- and returning it to Nikki Mills (Dementia Project Administrator),
20 Cavendish Square, London
nikki.mills at rcn.org.uk
Tel. 020 7647 3757.

Alternatively, we can send you a paper copy in the post along with a pre-paid envelope. Please contact Nikki Mills as above.

We are keen to get as many responses as possible so please do feel free to circulate this information as widely as possible. We are also attaching a flyer to promote the survey so if you are member of a group or organisation where you can display this,  we would be most grateful.

The closing date for the survey will be Thursday 16th June 2011

If you need any further information about the project then please contact Nikki Mills (as above) or Rachel Thompson (Dementia Project Lead) using the contact details below.

Thank you for your support.

Best wishes
