Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to our 21st National Dementias conference. 

Our Dementias series has become an essential event in the calendar of all those with an interest in old age psychiatry. Our resident programme planner Professor Alistair Burns will be joined this year by leading expert Dr John O’Brien. As always, we will have an outstanding agenda which will include plenty of time to exchange ideas and network over the two days.

Whether you have been before, perhaps several times, or whether you will be a new attendee, we are confident that this 21st conference will be informative, interactive and enjoyable. 

We look forward to seeing you in London in 2019!

Professor Alistair Burns, CBE & Professor John O'Brien
