Professor June Andrews
Professor June Andrews is the director of the Dementia Services Development Centre at the University of Stirling. The DSDC provides training, education, research and information about how to improve care for people with dementia. Professor Andrews is a psychiatric and general trained nurse and previous posts include working for the government in the Health Department, being the Director of Nursing of two general hospitals, leading the Royal College of Nursing in Scotland, and working as a nurse in psychiatric and geriatric hospitals. Because the number of people with dementia increases all the time as the population ages, the need for training and education in the field increases all the time. Professor Andrews is called upon internationally by governments, local authorities, health services, the private sector and voluntary organisations to give help and advice on how to improve services. Her main emphasis is on what is practical and makes a difference.
