Dementia Care in Shropshire

Description:

Dementia Care across Shropshire and South Staffordshire is provided by Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, which was formed in 2018 following a merger between South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Partnership NHS Trust.

Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust provides physical and mental health, learning disability and adult social care services across Shropshire, Staffordshire, and Stoke-on-Trent.  They provide a vast range of community services for adults and children and specialised services such as rheumatology and rehabilitation, which are delivered in venues ranging from health centres, GP practices, community hospitals and people's own homes.

There are specialist Memory Services which provide cognitive and functional assessments for individuals where there are concerns over memory or where there is an established diagnosis of dementia.

A Dementia Liaison Service covers the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital Telford, as well as the County Hospital, University Hospital of North Midlands and Queen's Hospital Burton.

The Redwoods Centre in Shrewsbury also has specialist inpatient wards:

  • Oak is an all age specialist dementia ward; and
  • Holly is a ward for older people with functional conditions.
