Get in touch with the team

The Business Development Team has a dual role: to develop new and sustainable Admiral Nurse services and to maintain current services by fostering positive partnerships with host organisations and by supporting the Admiral Nurses who work with them. There are currently 278 Admiral Nurses throughout England and Wales, but our goal is to increase this number to 300 by the end of 2020 and broaden the reach of Admiral Nurse services to include Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Developing new services

  • supporting the scoping and development of business cases
  • developing Service Specifications and determining outcomes
  • managing partnership agreements i.e. Service Collaboration Agreements ( SCA)
  • supporting recruitment of nurses: job descriptions, adverts and interviews
  • providing a link to other relevant Dementia UK teams

Maintaining and supporting existing services

  • maintaining effective partnerships through regular contact with host organisations and commissioners
  • setting up and participating in Steering Groups
  • supporting additional service growth and service developments
  • supporting recruitment or special events
  • key support with any problems
