Bamford Action Plan 2012-2015

The Bamford Action Plan (2009-2011) was produced in response to the Bamford Review (2007) - an independent review of mental health and learning disability law, policy and service provision commissioned by the DHSSPS http://www.dhsspsni.gov.uk/bamford.htm/.  This 2012-2015 plan carries forward the work of the earlier Bamford Action Plan, and in terms of dementia commits to continuing to improve dementia services in line with the dementia strategy in NI, with its emphasis on ensuring that people with dementia are treated with awareness and respect, especially by those providing services, and that they are supported to maintain their independence for as long as possible.
