Overview
We have been running DESMOND sessions since 2012, usually twice a month at two different venues (Warwick Hospital and Stratford-Upon-Avon Racecourse). Approx 10 patients attend each session and a friend/family member are also welcome to attend. The DESMOND Programme has proved to be extremely popular and successful. Feedback from participants has been very positive.
