Dementia Nurses

Postby Tonyblack » Fri Oct 10, 2008 12:18 pm

I've had an email asking me to post a link to a petition to request more dementia nurses in National Health Service hospitals.

I hope you don't mind me contacting you.

I wondered if you could be kind enough to post a link on the website asking people to sign a petition for 10 Downing Street. It is genuine. It is requesting for more dementia nurses to be employed within our hospitals within the UK. There is a massive shortage with many hospitals not even having a single specialized nurse.

Terry is doing a fantastic job trying to raise awareness of this terrible illness which is on the increase. It is difficult for anybody to understand the desperate need there is and the differnce this could make to our loved ones, not just for now but the future.

I will fully understand if you can't do this, but if I don't ask then I wont know.

The link is ... es/#detail

Many many thanks Diane Blower

This is almost certainly for UK residents only and I hope you'll all sign.

Petition to HM Government.

Thank you. :)

I can't sign it, but unless the situation in Britain is much better than here, it sounds like a good cause!
