The Queen Elizabeth Hospital is also the first in Norfolk to be using a new programme to help dementia patients.

My Life Software will be used to help staff ease the confusion of dementia patients when they are admitted. The programme will allow staff to compile a life history with photographs but there are also news and film clips along with pig racing and bingo.
