How the GP can support a person with dementia

GPs and GP practice staff (including practice nurses) have an important role in supporting people with dementia and their carers. It is important that people with dementia and carers have regular check-ups with their own doctor (at least once a year). They should see them as soon as possible if they have any concerns about their health. This page looks at the different kinds of support available from a GP for a person with dementia. It also explains how they and their carer can access them.

NHS Website

The NHS website is the online ‘front door’ to the NHS. It is the country’s biggest health website and gives all the information you need to make choices about your health. You can find information about hospitals, GPs and dentists and urgent care. As well as basic contact details, you can also find feedback from other people about what they think about these services. It’s not just limited to NHS information. You can also find information about other services in your area (often provided by charities) that can help you with conditions from Alzheimers through to weight loss.
