This resource has been produced to help GPs contribute positively to the needs of dementia patients. It is neither a guideline nor a protocol, but a pragmatic document intended to offer practical advice. It reflects the opinions of the authors and includes general practice input in the form of questions that might be posed to specialists and suggestions about creating a potential link with GP appraisal.
It is aimed at providing GP colleagues with greater confidence in assessing and managing people who have worries about or actual dementia as there is little doubt it is an increasingly common problem. The current media profile means that more people may come seeking reassurance as much as a diagnosis.
Community Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire have been redesigned. The changes to the service reflect the outcomes of recent CAMHS reviews, consultation with young people and families who use the services and the changing nature of these services across the country.
The CAMHS service provided by Humber NHS Foundation Trust is now made up of 3 key elements: Contact Point, Core CAMHS and Intensive Intervention Team. Read a summary of the 3 service elements here.
