Dementia carers: 'Important to ensure each person's needs are recognised'

My career has allowed me to meet a number of servicemen and women and hear the amazing stories they have to tell. Although, I do not have an Armed Forces background, I have a strong interest in history and will soon complete an MA at Birmingham University on the Second World War.

"I have also seen for myself the effect a dementia diagnosis can have on veterans and their families, and am looking forward to ensuring that each carer's needs are recognised and adequately supported."

– Ben Upton, from Birmingham, will head the service as lead nurse
