Dementia, The Jobbing Doctor, and My Black Cat

Good! Sock it to ’em Jobbing Doctor!

GP’s to be “trained” to recognise a devastating condition – one which has no effective treatment.

GP’s have spent a lifetime diagnosing (let’s use the medical term for “recognising”) this condition and struggled with obtaining practical hands-on support for these patients.

Memory clinics at every street corner.

Whatever next!

MY BLACK CAT IS WAY AHEAD OF THE WITCH DOCTOR

Hey, what was it My Black Cat was chattering on about yesterday?

Charity?

“My Black Cat seems to think two things she has read in the Sunday papers might prove to be very significant in the long term for some reason.

GOVERNMENT CONSIDERS ROLE IN CHARITY CRISIS”

And what is it that is being put forward by the government?

He said: “As well as national training for GPs, we’d like to see memory clinics in every town, where people can go for treatment and support to help them live their life as normally as possible.”

These services could be provided by a range of professionals, from geriatricians and psychiatrists to local GPs with a specialist interest, and could involve the voluntary sector, he added.

According to the Alzheimer’s Research Trust 163,000 new cases of dementia occur in England and Wales each year – amounting to one every 3.2 minutes.

It says that unless treatments are found the number of people with cognitive impairment who will be placed in institutions will rise by more than 63% from 224,000 in 1998 to 365,000 in 2031.”

Hmm…….

I’ll bet the memory clinics are destined to pop up in polyclinics!

It seems My Black Cat has got this sussed out.

In the meantime, though, The Witch Doctor is seeing through a glass darkly.

There’s more to this than meets the eye.

Much more.
