Herbert Protocol


The Herbert Protocol can give you some reassurance and help keep your loved ones safe.  It’s a local initiative for residents living in the North East of Scotland. The system provides the police with everything they need to know to search for the person living with dementia, should they go missing.

It is a form that is kept at home containing important information regarding known routines, habits as well as descriptions of your friend/relative and details of their and others involved with their care. It can be handed to Police so that you do not have to worry about gathering the information during what can be a very stressful time.  The form should be updated as necessary on a regular basis, so that information is as current as possible, and a recent photograph should also be kept with it.

Information leaflet on Herbert Protocol can be found -
