Dementia Friendly Practice

Surgery News


The John Hampden Surgery team, family, friends and patients pulled together on Thursday the 13th of June 2019 and baked cupcakes and cakes galore to help raise money and support the Alzheimer’s annual awareness campaign – ‘Cupcake Day’

We are pleased to announce that we raised £96.50 in total from the sale of lovely bakes and this has been donated to the Alzheimer’s Society by the practice.

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of you who got involved to make our first cupcake day a success and also helped raise awareness on a subject very close to the John Hampden Surgery’s heart.

Thank you!

Dr Mallard-Smith, Dr Roberts, Dr Hodder and team


The John Hampden Surgery is pleased to announce that we have recently won a bid to become a Dementia Friendly Practice. Over the next coming months the practice will be raising awareness about Dementia and making cosmetic changes to improve facilities in order to become more Dementia Friendly.

As part of our bid we will be working with patients and their carers to support and review our patients with a current diagnosis. We feel this is an important step in supporting families that are affected by Dementia.

Some of our staff have recently received training from Bedfordshire University on dementia awareness and have found the training extremely beneficial. Further training will be happening later on in the year, which will mean all employed staff at The John Hampden Surgery will be trained in dementia awareness.

In addition, all of our staff have become Dementia Friends and we would like to strongly encourage our patients to sign up to become a Dementia Friend. This can be done by  visiting the Dementia Friends website via the link below.

Please find attached a report explaining The John Hampden Surgery's progress with moving towards becoming a dementia friendly practice.

Up and coming events!
