An NHS project to improve treatment for people with dementia in Cornwall has been shortlisted for an award.
The scheme, pioneered in Newquay, has been recognised by the Health and Social Care Awards for its contribution to frontline care.
The Newquay Dementia Project's methods include a standardised health check for everyone diagnosed with dementia.
A memory clinic has also been set up and a health practitioner is working in care homes and community hospitals.
The NHS in Cornwall said improving care for people with dementia was a priority.
It is currently running a public information campaign across the county.
The winners of the Health and Social Care Awards will be announced at a ceremony on Wednesday.
