Coventry and Rugby have an Admiral nurse service in conjunction with the NHS Coventry and Rugby CCG, Dementia UK and Coventry University.
Coventry and Rugby Admiral Nurse Service (Mon to Fri 09:00 am to 5:00 pm)
Telephone: 0300 303 3131 Please note that patients or carers can be given this number to self refer into the service
If your call is not answered, please leave a message with your contact details and referral details on the answerphone; which will be responded to as soon as staff are available.
Please note that the Dementia Nurse service is not an emergency service.
This service is available to people living in Coventry and Rugby who are providing care and support for a person with a diagnosis or likely diagnosis of dementia.
To access the service, patients or carers must be registered with a Coventry or Rugby GP.
Referrals will be accepted from Patients, Carers, GP’s and Arden Memory Services.
Six Admiral Nurses serve the two areas thanks to a partnership project between NHS Coventry and Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Dementia UK, Coventry and Rugby GP Alliance and Coventry University.
Admiral Nurses are registered specialist dementia nurses who provide expert practical, clinical and emotional support to families living with dementia. They play a unique role in care management by joining up the different parts of the health and social care system, so the needs of family carers and people with dementia can be addressed in a co-ordinated way.
Please see right for the Admiral Nurse referral form and an information leaflet about the service.
National Dementia UK Helpline
The Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline is for anyone with a question or concern about dementia. From looking out for the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s, to understanding the challenges of living with someone with vascular dementia, our specialist Admiral Nurses have the knowledge and experience to understand the situation and suggest answers that might be hard to find elsewhere.
