This event is now fully booked.
However, there are likely to be a few spaces free due to no-shows on the day, so you are invited to turn up 'on-spec' and we will accomodate you if there is capacity. Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee a place, but at previous events we have been able to to accomodate everyone attending without a ticket.
TEDMED DISCUSSION Dementia: does everyone want an early diagnosis?
Dementia is one of the biggest healthcare challenges our society faces. It is now possible to make an earlier diagnosis of dementia. But not everyone wants to know. Leading experts will come together to present differing views on the controversial proposal that everyone over 75 should be screened for dementia in order to improve dementia care in the UK. Dementia was voted the most important health challenge by Bristolians in a recent poll carried out by Bristol Health Partners as part of
TEDMEDLive Bristol, in association with the Post.
