New support service for families living with dementia creates six new Admiral nursing roles in Lincolnshire

“St Barnabas is delighted to be supporting the project which is being delivered through the partnership. This collaboration will ensure that the Admiral Nursing Team are able to care for a greater number of patients and families across the county and improve the life of those living with dementia.”

Cllr Mrs Patricia Bradwell OBE, executive member for adult care at Lincolnshire County Council, said:
