Dr David Crichton, Chair of NHS Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “While Doncaster has made good progress in diagnosing people with dementia and offering support to patients and their families, I welcome the planned events to ensure we continue to raise awareness and keep identifying those people who have memory problems and provide them with the best possible care.”
