OXFORD branches of Rowlands Pharmacy will be taking part in a national dementia awareness campaign this month.

The pharmacy chain is encouraging members of the public to call into its stores to find out more about the condition and research into treatments.

As part of the campaign led by Join Dementia Research and Alzheimer’s Research UK, Rowlands pharmacy staff will be trained to offer advice, information and support on dementia and to answer questions or concerns people may have as well as provide information about taking part in new research programmes.
