Following on from the Dementia Awareness Event on Wednesday 21st November, amongst lots of information provided from the speakers, Cotgrave Police informed us of the Herbert Protocol – a system set up which they use to help search for people living with Dementia-related illnesses if they go missing.
Carers, family members and friends can complete in advance, a form recording all vital details, such as medication required, mobile numbers, places previously located, a photograph etc. In the event of your family member or friend going missing, the form can be easily sent or handed to the police to reduce the time taken in gathering this information.
The Herbert Protocol initiative is named after George Herbert, a War veteran of the Normandy landings, who lived with dementia.
Forms can be obtained from the Nottinghamshire Police Website https://www.nottinghamshire.police.uk/sites/default/files/Nottinghamshire_Police_Herbert_Protocol_Form_0.pdf
Copies of the form are also available from the Town Council Office.
