John's Campaign - supporting people with dementia
In 2016, the BGS Newsletter carried an article on John’s Campaign. We now report on the progress of the campaign and over this and the next issue, will be looking the its spread throughout the devolved nations.
The campaign was instituted by Nicci Gerrard and Julia Jones, after the publication, in the Observer newspaper on November 30th, 2014, of Nicci’s article about the death of her father Dr John Gerrard.
John’s Campaign advocates for the removal of all restrictions on family carers supporting their relatives in hospital and a positive attitude of welcome and collaboration throughout the health and care system.
