The Welsh Day Debate, held on or around St. David's Day, is a chance for Welsh MPs to raise issues important to our constituencies on the floor of the House of Commons.

Having used this column previously to highlight some of the important issues around dementia diagnosis rates, as well as the really fantastic work the Alzheimer’s Society do across the country to support those affected, I was really pleased to be invited to the launch of their new Dementia Friends scheme at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff recently.
