60 seconds with dementia expert June Andrews
The only thing in life that is rationed is time – so don’t waste a minute, says professor June Andrews.
Professor June Andrews was made an OBE earlier this year for services to people with dementia. Her 30-year nursing career has spanned clinical practice, policy making and strategic management, including 10 years as director of the Dementia Services Development Centre at Scotland’s University of Stirling. Married with one daughter, she now works independently to improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers. In 2012, she was given the chief nursing officer’s lifetime achievement award, and in 2014 received the fellowship of the RCN, the college’s highest honour awarded to UK nurses who have made an exceptional contribution to healthcare.
